A disabled war veteran was disabled for 15 years until he discovered yoga
When American paratrooper Arthur Boorman returned home injured from the Gulf War, doctors told him he'd never walk unassisted again.
One too many jumps led to chronic back and knee problems making his military workout a thing of the past.
For 15 years, Boorman believed them. Consequently, his weight ballooned to 297 lbs.
But, at 47 years old, the disheartened veteran discovered yoga in a newspaper article about DDP Yoga a kind of power athletic yoga used by football players and wrestlers. http://www.ddpyoga.com/site/index.php/en/about-ddpyoga
As demonstrated in this incredible video below the non-impact yoga workout helped Boorman shed 140 lbs in 10 months, and made a remarkable physical recovery.
