U.S. Army veteran, farmer, and educator, Charley Jordan, shares how his yoga practice and connection with the earth changed his life after military service.
We met U.S. Army veteran Charley Jordan through photographer, and fellow Glo podcast guest, Robert Sturman (episode #14). Sturman photographed Charley and other military veterans who use yoga as a healing practice for PTSD as well as mental, emotional, and physical effects due to their careers.
Charley is now a college adjunct professor, flower farmer, and owner of Jordan Farms in Tennessee. Charley and Derik discuss his 28 years of service and how he discovered yoga and horticulture as a way of safely dealing with and healing from the intense emotion and trauma of a demanding career. He shares about a veterans organization called Connected Warriors, and how his commitment to his yoga practice and connection with the earth changed his life.
