Portland, Ore., yoga instructor Kate Dessommes has begun classes for amputees as well as "Yoga Warriors" for military veterans. One client is quadruple amputee Jim Tucker, who loved bikram, or "hot," yoga before losing parts of his arms and legs to infection. With Dessommes' help, Tucker was able to execute all of the basic poses with simple adjustments, such as using a block, blanket and pillow.
