Yoga For First Responders with Olivia Kvitne:

This lecture and class will introduce trainees to the original intent of yoga, the neurological benefits of yoga, and the scientific research that backs it up. Trainees will learn Tactical Breath Work exercises, Physical Drills, and Neurological Reset techniques that make up the the Yoga For First Responders protocol. These techniques can then be adopted to on the job skills for optimizing performance as well as self de-escalation.


Translating Yoga Practices to Law Enforcement Skills with Rick Largesse:

Mobility equals survivability. Flat-range training seldom incorporates improvised shooting positions nor does it incorporate shooting under stress. The range portion of this training event will bridge the gap between Yoga and the tactical world by exposing the attendee to the benefits of breath control as well as core strength in the application of techniques shown to limit officer casualties while increasing combat effective marksmanship.


Processing Organizational Stress with Assistant Chief Christopher Davis:

With the current “police environment,” there is a huge demand for “police wellness and education.” The presentation focuses on the effects of Organizational Stress and Trauma and how to mitigate its impact on your personal and professional life.
