February 21, 2016
Tejasvi Sharma, a 21-year-old student from Bihar, has been recognized as the most flexible disabled yoga champion. Its a remarkable achievement because Sharma suffers from 69% disabilities.
Sharma got polio on both legs when he was nine years old. Doctors said that his legs may not function properly again. He was asked to practice yoga to be able to walk without crutches. He went on to take it up as profession.
Sharma wants to study yoga further and discover new postures for the disabled. He won a silver medal in the World Cup Yoga championship in 2011 and a gold medal in 2012.
