Welcome to Corinne’s “Unfreeze Your Body/ Mind challenge”: yoga for paraplegic. Breathe, get grounded, “rise above”… This is the promise of yoga … also for people living with a spinal cord injury. Therefore, I am challenging myself to learn full-body paraplegic yoga and to practice it on a regular basis. Yoga courses for physically challenged people are rare and I am learning on my own, with the help of internet. My end goal is to post various pictures of yoga asanas (poses), and ultimately to make and share a video that will help others to get started.
More over Corinne’s challenge: Yoga is challenging, especially if you are paralysed! … but also a unique opportunity to reconcile with your entire body… and soul… It is known to be extremely beneficial to people living with SCI.
Through a donation, you can support me in realizing this challenge and help other people with SCI. As pledged 100% of your gift will go to goal-driven research to cure chronic spinal cord injury.
Your donation is eligible for Tax Refund in Europe. If you live in a European country other than the Netherlands though, please contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org regarding your donation. Thanks for your support.
BOW POSE by Corinne (an attempt…) in my home yoga “studio”. This pose is far from what it should be… mainly because of shortened muscles (after too much sitting).

Disclaimer: I am starting from scratch and doing everything alone, from home. I had never practised yoga in my life. Therefore, the photos and videos shared on this page are merely an illustration of my progress, they are not showing a state-of-the-art practice, by far! Thank you to Yoga Kumar for inspiring me and showing me the way in 2019.
Updates, photos and videos: I will regularly post update, photos and videos in this section for you to follow my progress. Bear with me, I am not there yet 🙂 Until then, thanks a lot for your support!
UPDATE 2022: Corinne’s Unfreeze challenge: yoga for paraplegic is still going on and we are still raising money for research to cure chronic spinal cord injury/ paralysis. We will keep updating you in this page, though new pictures and videos.
