Yoga for Veterans

War can leave a variety of scars, and the Warrior Transit Unit at Fort Campbell, Kentucky has taken note of this. The army base has begun offering yoga classes for wounded soldiers as part of an enhanced physical training. It is being offered as a replacement for hardcore physical training as the soldiers transition from war to civilian life, along with nature walks, bowling and archery. This way, soldiers get both fitness and stress-relief. It gives new meaning to 'warrior pose'. For more, check out the original article on NPR and the blog post on YogaDork.
