Yoga After Paralysis
Tiffany Joiner describes how she returned to her yoga mat after falling from a balcony and suffering 80% paralysis of her legs
Ready for some Wednesday inspiration?! This video should certainly do the trick. Tiffany Joiner describes her legs as “80 per cent paralysed” due to a balcony fall six years ago. It took a long time for the former yoga teacher to get "back on the mat" but now her Instagram photos and videos have earned the UK-based American a loyal following by disabled "yogis". Her handle is @yogaplegic.
Watch the video to find out why she duct tapes her feet together before practicing, how a year of solo travel around Latin America helped her recovery and what advice she'd give to other disabled people keen to try yoga or another physical activity. Namaste.
