Join our FREE yoga programs, offered to all first responders & their families

Since October 2019, IFAA has provided yoga to first responders while at the workplace at no cost. As yoga may not be the first modality a first responder may consider for self care and restoration, yoga could be a beneficial tool to work through potential circumstances they may encounter.
