He couldn’t walk or run he was in such pain when he left the service, exercise seemed impossible. His weight 297 pounds was making matters worse for his ailing body. He was told by doctors he would never walk again without the aid of a brace and canes.

As you can see, it is testimony to the effectiveness of yoga and movement, as well as inspirational testimony to what you can do if you just believe in you and set your mind to your goal.
