The stories are too familiar. Catastrophe strikes and news teams show up to highlight the damage, the needs of the community, and the first responders upon initial impact. But what happens after the crew and cameras leave?
ISA Foundation partner, Embody, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, comes in. They know the lasting, negative effect these types of events can have on weary firefighters and the community as they rebuild. “Just because the media disappears doesn’t mean we do,” says Dana Christian Lee, Embody Founder & Executive Director.
Using the healing tools of yoga and mindfulness, Embody helps burned-out firefighters, homeless populations, and many others living with daily heightened stress regain agency over their own well-being.
