Hi everyone! I'm a retired Air Force veteran and YogaFit level 1 instructor.  I've done yoga for over 20 years, but finally committed to bringing this practice to others to share the joy.  I have been using the Calm app as part of my personal mindfulness practice for some time (5+ years?); in fact, I 'discovered' positive psychology thanks to the Calm app's Masterclass with Shawn Achor.  I bought his book "The Happiness Advantage" and it really got me interested in the power of mindfulness and the amazing connection between happiness and productivity - not just for work, but personal self-actualization.  While in the military, I was a resilience trainer and suicide prevention/awareness advocate and instructor for 8+ years, and the certification process here as well as the well-designed curriculum brought me here.  I'm dedicated to supporting high-performing members of our community who are dedicated to giving back and making this world a better place.

Hi Melissa! Sending you a warm welcome to our program and community. I'm Gillian - part of Sean's support team. 

It sounds like you have such a wealth of training and experience behind you that mindfulness will complement very well.

If you have any questions as you navigate the material, reach out at any time.
