The following day, wounded warrior Dan Nevins will host a yoga event at Heritage Park in Canton, just over 10 miles down the road. For years, Dan Nevins has used the transformative power of yoga to inspire others to live a life of physical health and wellness.
"For me, yoga helps me stay present in the present moment," Dan said. "I lived with the invisible wounds of war for years. I learned to cope with those wounds – yoga taught me how to heal, so there's nothing left to cope with. Yoga has given me the freedom to not have my past affect my future."
