"Warrior Pose" For A War Correspondent


Brad Willis roamed the world covering wars and other difficult situations for NBC News, before a broken back and failed surgery sidelined him.  And that was just the beginning of his difficulties. 

A diagnosis of cancer made him believe the end was near.  So he changed his focus.

Brad Willis became Bhava Ram, and immersed himself in yoga to heal his mind and body.  He tells his story in the book "Warrior Pose: A War Correspondent's Memoir."
