MERIDIAN, Idaho — Dan Nevins lost his best friend and both of his legs while serving in the U.S. Army, his vehicle got hit with an IED blast while Nevins was deployed in Iraq back in 2004.

Nevins said yoga helped turn his life around and gave him a new purpose, Nevins arrived in the Treasure Valley to host a special yoga event.

Nevins specializes in Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga and over the next two days Nevins will host a special clinic at Authentic Yoga in Meridan.

On Friday he will teach a 90-minute class starting at 6:00 p.m. which costs $30 and on Saturday he will offer a three-hour workshop starting at 11:00 a.m. and that one costs $45, if you want to attend both classes there is a discount.

The proceeds raised will to to the Wounded Warrior Project and Nevins encourages anyone to come.

"Are you into making this the most successful well-adjusted generation of warriors in our history?" said Nevins. "If yes then maybe consider showing up to yoga because that is one way to give back and get something in return."
