Meet @kristopherpace sharing his #yogasavedmylife story with us. These are his words 🙏

"I had been diagnosed with PTSD, TBI, vertigo, chronic migraines, & ruptured disks in my neck as a Veteran of the United States Air Force. I was on a cumulative of eleven 'medications' at a time


In 2010 I was seeing my mental health doctor and was told that I was a "Hopeless Case" and that the majority of the people who had my diagnosis would kill themselves or end up institutionalized. Immediately

.

.

I walked out and never took another med, began to research health and wellness, found yoga... Found meditation... Found vegetarianism... And found peace and balance. Six years later I have lost over sixty pounds, am in the best shape and health of my life and hope to share my story and knowledge with others that need it or would like to know about it

.

.

I have been faced with many obstacles along the journey from serviceman to civilian... those challenges are more than some Veterans can handle, and because of that, we are losing incredible men and women at an alarming rate: 22 veterans a day commit suicide in America

.

.

I share my story to help other Veterans in need to find and understand the value of being apart of society. All of us know those who are struggling... reach out to them. Share. Let's save lives" 🙏
