This short story comes from a veteran I recently had the pleasure of teaching with Annie at Omega, for an all male veterans yoga retreat. As the title states, it's the beginning of something powerful! We look forward to hearing about your growth......

I have an obligation to live on and show other combat veterans who have sustained any injuries or anything they struggle with in life that no one is alone and we are here for one another. My first yoga experience was at Semper Fi Odyssey February of this year. The most recent retreat I attended at Omega really let me know my calling and if Yoga has healed me this much. I have no doubt with proper training and guidance which I've already been receiving, I can help other grunts see that yoga and meditation heal unlike anything I have experienced.I could write forever, but this sums it up. More to come, stay tuned.
