Jeff Sargent spent two decades in the U.S. Army fighting on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan. After retirement, Jeff suffered from PTSD. A friend mentioned doing yoga as a form of treatment and Jeff replied “real men don’t do yoga.” He realizes now how short-sighted he was. Jeff started doing yoga and the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits have been endless. He says yoga saved his life and was so moved by the practice that he is now finishing up his Master’s degree in Yoga Therapy with hopes of helping other soldiers who suffer from PTSD.
