Veteran swears by yoga practice for PTSD

22 Nov
A veteran of The Vietnam War swears by his yoga practice, saying that it was his regular practice of yoga, before, during and after the war that helped him to conquer his posttraumatic stress..
Dear BR,

My boyfriend John gives testimony to the fact that he conquered his posttraumatic stress from the Vietnam War through the use of yoga. He’d been a devoted yoga practitioner before, during and after his tour of duty. He’s not a meditator or a guided imagery fan. Instead he swears it was his practice of yoga that got him through very bad times and healed him.
