Veterans, Even Wounded, Finding Help In YogaThe Veterans Site
In this video, Lance, and his instructor, Fred, speak about how yoga can be practiced by anyone — especially war veterans. Yoga like everything in this world has its own stereotypes, yoga is just for women or free spirits but that can not be farther from the truth. Yoga allows you to train and challenge your body on a physical and mental level.
The physical is obvious, just try a free 15 minute yoga video and you will understand. Mentally you can get into a state of mediation or relaxation that will help your stress melt away.
As Lance was born without his legs this video is a particularly potent example of how Yoga can be used by combat Veterans who have suffered injuries while serving their country. Lance and his teacher Fred Busch have dedicated this video to the brave combat veterans and their families and are particularly grateful to Connected Warriors, an organization that provides free Yoga to veterans, active duty servicemen and servicewomen, and their families.
