VetsYoga: How Yoga Helped Two Combat Veterans Deal With PTSD

On their tours of duty, Sue Lynch and Hugo Patrocinio survived everything from SCUD missile attacks to flying shrapnel – but when they came home, the war came with them. Post-traumatic stress disorder left both veterans dealing with symptoms ranging from depression to migraines, nightmares to drinking problems and anger. Then, they discovered the healing power of yoga.

“I found this ability to manage my symptoms. I could be in charge of this PTSD that was in charge of me for so many years. I could go to my mat and feel better.”
