Jon Greuel (Major, USAF Ret.) has been teaching yoga to active duty military personnel and veterans since 2005. His effort to document the healing power of yoga and mindfulness culminated in his collaboration as the principal investigator of the recently published study, The Effects of Sensory Enhanced Yoga on Symptoms of Combat Stress in Deployed Military Personnel (AJOT Jan, 2012). During his last deployment, he continued to document the therapeutic effects of yoga and mindfulness through surveys covering various anxiety and sleep quality aspects. His simple, yet keenly effective research technique has yielded a rare glimpse into the deployed military perspective. Jon has presented at civilian and military healthcare conferences where he discusses his unique perspective regarding the mind-body connection, combat stress and PTSD. He currently serves as a Teacher Trainer for Lucy Cimini’s, Yoga Warriors International. In 2013, he completed a Professional Certificate in Mindfulness Studies from Lesley University. With his wife Suzie Verdin, Jon launched a nonprofit, Humanity Moves, to continue their work with teaching artists, yoga instructors and various at-risk populations including, youth, prison parolees, veterans and their families. From a diverse set of experiences that span from yoga studio owner to Iraqi Combat Air Advisor Instructor Pilot, Jon teaches yoga and mindfulness from a place of understanding and compassion, especially for those veterans with PTSD.
