What we view in the Canadian Forces as fitness is very warrior-like activities. Yoga, on the other hand, is not typically what we’d see as being a military type of activity. A lot of people can participate and do it, all depending on their own personal level of fitness.

Julie Gagnon – Fitness Instructor

Fitness is a key element for a soldier. The more mobility you have, the more flexibility you have, the more strength you will generate at your next training. So it’s very, very important to actually take that time to do yoga.
