Mindful Responder: A Veteran Serves in Yoga & Wellness

Sean Weir served in both the United Kingdom and United States career Fire Services.  He was a career fire-fighter in the Royal Air Force and Greater Manchester Fire Services in the United Kingdom.  He is certified in both Florida and Connecticut as a fire fighter and in CT as a Fire Officer/Instructor and EMT. 

First experiencing Yoga and Mindfulness through the Uniformed Services Program, Sean Weir became particularly interested in mind-body practices that combined the benefit of Eastern wisdom with Western evidence-based research. After retiring from the West Haven Fire Department, Sean has transitioned to serve his fellow Responder community, providing yoga and mindfulness workshops.
