GOOD NEWS Double-Amputee Vet Shares Inspirational Story About Healing Power of Yoga
Army Staff Sgt. Daniel Nevins lost both of his legs while serving in Iraq more than a decade ago.
While searching for a way to move forward with his life, he found yoga about a year and a half ago.
"From the first time when I took my legs off ... there was something magical about just getting reconnected to being just a human being," he shared.
As a certified Baptiste Yoga teacher, Nevins now leads hour-long classes with the hopes of inspiring other veterans. He believes that it can save other veterans' lives and is now trying to raise awareness with the help of Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio).
"We lose 22 vets a day to suicide and my mission is to reduce that number," Ryan said. "I don't care what technique, what approach is needed to do it."
