Judyth Piazza interviews Bhava Ram, Author of Warrior Pose: How Yoga (Literally) Saved My Life

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Can severe illness, addiction, and crippling injury lead to a healthier, happier life?


For former NBC war correspondent Brad Willis, the answer is a resounding yes. He says his broken back, failed surgery, stage IV cancer, and lost career were his greatest teachers and biggest blessings.


Experts agree. A 2013 study found that those who reported the greatest levels of trauma and adversity also reported the highest levels of growth and self-development. (Here`s the link.)


Willis, who took the spiritual name Bhava Ram after he abandoned Western medicine and completely healed himself using esoteric practices of yoga, has an inspirational message to share with everyone who is suffering from debilitating illness or injury: We all have an inherent power to heal ourselves.


Brad Willis, a.k.a. Bhava Ram, is a former NBC News war correspondent who self-healed from a broken back, addiction, failed surgery, and stage IV cancer using yoga science. The founder of Deep Yoga, based in San Diego, he teaches workshops throughout the US and India. His new book is Warrior Pose: How Yoga (Literally) Saved My Life (BenBella Books).
