Beneath the Surface Foundation

Beneath the Surface Foundation is the embodiment of a powerful healing journey; a lighthouse for those struggling to navigate the rocky waters. Beneath the Surface Foundation was founded on the overwhelming need, and desire, to provide combat veterans with the lifelong, whole-person, resiliency practices, of yoga and ocean therapies.

We are special operations veterans. We are yoga teachers and healers. We are watermen and women. We have all stood in the darkness. Through these practices, we have emerged triumphant and victorious. Brought together and united by our commitment to continued service, our collective mission is to provide genuine, proven, and authentic healing modalities to our brothers and sisters in arms. 

With willingness to do the work to heal, combat veterans will be insulated, in a 10-day therapeutic immersion. Guided professional and holistic practices, combined with the powerful energy of the ocean, will provoke and expose the negative effects combat inflicts on the human soul. By implementing a meticulous, follow-on program, Beneath the Surface’s model will revitalize and enhance veterans lives through connection, healing, and community. 

Your generous donations will be put towards sharing lifelong changes and healing for combat veterans struggling with PTS. This initial fundraiser will support the primary, start-up costs and the beginning stages of our Proof of Concept and Marketing Campaign, in order to receive more funding to launch our first immersion. 

For all of the support we have received, we are forever thankful and do not take any of your efforts for granted.
