Policeman Discovers The Merits Of Yoga

Westport, Conn., cop Richard Failla never expected to fall in love with yoga, but after attending just one class with his next-door neighbor, he was hooked. Now the policeman of 20 years not only practices yoga -- he teaches it.

Hear more about Failla's journey to appreciating the restorative powers of yoga in the video above.
