The Greatest Yoga Master

Dan Nevins shares his epic story about yoga and Wounded Warrior Project

Army veteran Dan Nevins may have lost his legs after an IED explosion. But that’s just the beginning of his story.

After his transformative rehabilitation, he had to conquer something new -- the opiates he was given by the ton. But along the way, Nevins discovered a force more powerful than anything he had experienced before -- yoga.We talked with Dan about his journey to becoming one of the nation's premier yoga instructors and public speakers, and how Wounded Warrior Project was there from the very start.

So, to show his friends fighting in Vietnam that they still cared, he snuck into combat zones to bring his buddies a beer.
