    Air Force Veteran and Para Yoga Teacher, Wendy Emminger

    Air Force Veteran and Para Yoga Teacher, Wendy Emminger

    Wendy Emminger is a 2003 graduate of the United States Air Force Academy. She played soccer there and went on to lead and fly in the Air Force. Wendy battled with depression and found parayoga to be what saved and transformed her life. Wendy and I discussed her battles and overcoming them, her finding Four Desires Training, taking care of yourself first so you CAN take care of those you love/lead, and much more. A part of the Four Desires Training Wendy talks about is developing your Dharma Code (life purpose). One main part of the training is identifying your vikalpa, the thing that holds you back, and in Wendy’s case pride held her back from seeking out help - but she exhibits strength when she asks for help.   Check out Wendy’s video on ending veteran suicide here https://youtu.be/RrtdAOUwN9A You can contact Wendy here: Wendyemminger@gmail.com Find her here on LinkedIn: http://linkedin.com/in/wendy-emminger-0b17b67

The struggle is real
