YouTube always attracts the most vile comments for some reason.

Anyway, this was amazing, thanks for sharing. Makes me so glad I've found yoga myself. I didn't have his disabilities, but I couldn't lift my leg up to tie my shoe before I started yoga two months ago, now I can. My own small miracle. If you will work it, yoga can change your life.

I read something about this video today suggesting it is fake, as yoga cannot restore the destructive impact of parajumping on the knees.

But meh. Screw the haters (Just figuring some of the dislikes came from that, which is why I mention it.) I thought the video was beautiful!

Oh wow! I was quite moved by that video. Thank you so much for sharing it on here.

I've done yoga for years (and I still fall!) so I shared a little chuckle (in empathy) when he fell - but the best part was he KEPT GOING!

My favourite part was at the very end of the clip... simply inspirational.

I was disappointed however to see the dislikes - just goes to prove there's always going to be haters out there, just gotta get past that, they are just another obstacle/challenge in the journey.

That was awesome! And with the comments of his knees weren't repairable. Well, the probably weren't as bad as they realized and just needed strengthening and flexibility and patience.

Restart 5/18/15 began at 263.9. All time high was 275 in 7/03. Low in Summer 2012 of 169.

WOW, thanks so much for sharing that with us -- as someone who walks with 2 canes, this is so inspirational to me! I just showed it to my DH too and he got all choked up. I was shocked when I saw Arthur running at the end. Talk about tenacity; talk about perseverance. I will play this again and again ...
