The Healing Effects of Yoga [Video]

THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE MOST INSPIRING story I’ve ever seen related to the practice of Yoga.

Arthur Boorman is a Gulf War veteran who was injured from the result of too many jumps as a paratrooper.

Doctors said he would never walk again without the assisted help from braces and walking poles. He also gained weight and topped around 300 lbs.

At the beginning of the video we see an obese man who can barely walk without help, and he began a yoga routine. In 10 months he lost 140 lbs. and not only could he walk, he could run!

This is an inspirational testament to the healing powers of Yoga practice.

And also an amazing message… don’t give up.
