A Detroit man, Larry Sherman, was able to shed an incredible 365 pounds over the last four years. His secret? Yoga.

The formerly 540-pound Sherman attributes his success to the inclusive, non-judgmental feel of his local Yoga studio, which he says "saw him as a person."

Yoga Shelter co-founder Eric Paskel attributes Sherman's weight loss success to dealing with his own psychological issues, saying: "It's not the way you eat food, it's what's eating at you."
