Elaine & Heath Brewer - Couple, Veteran, Founders of Humble Warrior Wellness Center (Season 3, Episode #49)
Elaine & Heath Brewer - founders of Humble Warrior Wellness Center - where together they dedicate their profession to the provision of restorative services and techniques with the goal to bring harmony and balance to the hyper-vigilant and traumatic work environments that veterans, first responders and emergency medical professionals experience in their daily work.
Elaine and Heath have been married for 15 years. Elaine earned a 200hr Baptiste affiliated Yoga Teacher Training Certification, Certified Warriors at Ease Yoga Instructor (Level 1 & Level 2), StrongFirst Training and Instruction SFG Kettlebell Course, Madd Dog Certified Spinning Instructor, Certified Group Fitness Instructor, and holds a certificate in The Science of Well-Being from Yale University and Specialization in Integrative Health and Medicine from University of Minnesota. Heath is a Navy Veteran retiring after 20 years of service supporting Navy Special Operations with specific service supporting SEAL Team 2 and Naval Special Warfare Development Group as their Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician to include over 12 operational deployments.
After attending a life-changing intensive outpatient program at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE), a specialized branch of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Heath became intimately aware of the rejuvenating and healing properties of meditation, yoga, and other mindfulness techniques. Elaine, having also experienced trauma and loss associated with Heath's time in service, decided to shift her focus from her physical health background to incorporate mental health resilience and Elaine quickly recognized the restorative and therapeutic properties with the mind/body connection that yoga and meditation provide along with the undeniable benefits it offers those who have experienced trauma in their lives. So much so, that this shared experience between Elaine and Heath became the inspiration to create a wellness center for veterans, first responders, and emergency medical personnel called the Humble Warrior Wellness Center.
