Ademen, geaard zijn, “rise above”… Dit is de belofte van yoga… ook voor mensen met een dwarslaesie. Daarom daag ik mezelf uit om full-body paraplegische yoga te leren en het regelmatig te beoefenen. Yoga cursussen voor mensen met een fysieke beperking zijn zeldzaam en ik leer het op eigen houtje, met de hulp van internet. Mijn einddoel is om verschillende foto’s van yoga asanas (houdingen) te plaatsen, en uiteindelijk video’s te maken en te delen die anderen zal helpen om te beginnen.

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).

The Unfreeze Paraplegic Yoga challenge is sponsored by SMART GROUP

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.
