Who We Are
Jason has served in the military for 20 years as both a firefighter and a First Sergeant. He is also a 200-hour certified yoga instructor, teaching yoga and meditation to military members around the world. His unique background of service as well as his own personal experience of living life as a first responder helps him connect with service members and veterans to help them navigate the unique stressors that they experience during their career.
Kim is a certified trauma informed yoga instructor, retreat leader, and yoga teacher trainer with Mind & Body Complete. Her mission is to help our service men and women create a routine and mindset that feels authentic, purposeful and practical through yoga, mindfulness, and specialized wellness practices.
Maybe you are feeling stressed, anxious, and completely out of balance? We have both been there. We’ve learned that straying from our own practices leaves us reeling from stress and anxiety and an overwhelming sense of being out of control.
Once that cycle starts, everything else feels like it falls out of sync and we would find ourselves lost, frustrated and just plain exhausted not just with ourselves, but the people around us too. We’ve learned from our own experiences and had to take a hard look at our daily choices and mindset to truly connect with our inner knowing that said, 'take care of you first’.
Once we began to lean-in to the places that needed our attention, we realized there was something big missing from the training our service members were getting. You’ve been trained to thrive in high-stress, high-tempo environments without the adequate tools to help you release the stress when it was no longer needed to survive.
This is where we found that by incorporating mindfulness-based practices such as breathing techniques, mindful movement, meditation, and somatic practices you can halt the stress cycle and create new pathways.
Being able to understand HOW and WHY our bodies and brains work the way they do and how yoga, meditation, and mindset practices can help improve and balance these functions is invaluable. Through our experience working with service members across the globe, and leading yoga and meditation sessions, retreats, and workshops, we’ve seen this work in ways that are beautiful to see unfold.
Whether you’re dealing with stress, anxiety, or symptoms of PTSD, or just want to learn more mindful habits we are excited to share specific tools so we can SERVE YOU and create pathways to restoration, one practice at a time.

Community & Support
Our retreats are designed exclusively for active military personnel and veterans to release stress and connect back to what matters most, yourself. We offer an environment to forge connections with fellow service members while mastering powerful stress-relief techniques. Immerse yourself in nature and discover a haven of tranquility and camaraderie. Join us for an unforgettable journey of relaxation, personal growth, and lots of fun, where honor meets tranquility & we SERVE YOU!
Community plays a vital role in keeping us grounded and connected to what's important. Without support and a sense of belonging, it's easy to lose focus. That's why we place a strong emphasis on cultivating both online and in-person communities, especially during our retreats.
Through our communities, we strive to create a safe and inclusive space where individuals can freely express themselves and connect with like-minded people. We believe that building meaningful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging is crucial for personal growth and development. Whether it's through shared experiences, interests, or goals, our communities provide a platform for individuals to support and learn from one another.
During our retreats, we encourage participants to engage in group activities and discussions to strengthen their bonds and expand their perspectives. We also facilitate opportunities for individuals to connect outside of the retreat setting through social events and ongoing communication channels.
We recognize that community looks different for everyone, and we strive to create an environment that is welcoming and accessible to all. By prioritizing the cultivation of strong communities, we aim to help individuals feel empowered and inspired to pursue their passions and live their best lives.
