Professional athletes have been using systematic training in yoga, meditation, and breathing practices to improve overall performance and manage stress. These practices focus on improving resilience, strength, focus, speed, peak performance and endurance. The CALM WARRIOR program is specifically designed to introduce these skills to the members of the law enforcement community.

The Calm Warrior Rx program focuses on integrating three key activities: Breathing, Focus / Meditation and Modified Yoga
We have created the Rx in short segments, knowing that many times after experiencing a stressful incident, you may only have 1 or 2 minutes to reboot and recharge. The Calm Warrior Rx for Stress and Anxiety can be extremely useful in very short increments, or longer if you have the time.
It consists of 5 practical steps:

1. Assessment, Awareness: observe, witness
2. Breathe efficiently
3. Concentrate, Center with focus
4. Discern: act, avoid or accept
5. Ease: relax muscle tension


Breathing is natural. It is automatic, and it is something you always have within your reach to help regulate stress.
In a stressful situation focused breathing can allow us to:

  • Minimize the effects of stress
  • Harness the good stress to develop focus and expand the senses
  • Manage the effects of adrenaline surges before and during an incident
  • Reduce the effects of the adrenaline dump after a stressful incident


We all need time to decompress. The meditation techniques we teach you are applicable to real life situations, refreshing your mind and benefiting your body – (this is not about trying to blank out your mind and chanting om!)
