Health Benefits

Why Special Ops Are Doing Yoga—and Why You Should, Too

These warriors swear by it. See what it can do for you

As a Special Operations soldier, I must make good decisions in high-stress situations. The frame of mind that yoga puts me in lets me step back and assess a situation through a different lens and then react more calmly. In my line of work, that can be lifesaving.

One afternoon, while in moon pose, I realized that I can’t impose my will on my marriage—I just had to step back and let it run the way it needed to run.

Soon, everything started working between us. I’m better at my job. I’m better in the gym.

I’m better at home. Hell, ask my wife—I’m even better in bed.
