Yoga for Amputees
I Remember not too long after my amputation taking a 12 week Yoga course with my girlfriend at the time. I have to admit, I didn’t stick with it; I much preferred the swimming pool in those days, and still do. She, however, was a very proficient practitioner of yoga and did it daily, even on our camping trips.
