Yoga for Ankle Injuries – How to Heal and Rebuild Strength

I am no stranger to a sore ankle. In just over a year, my lanky limbs have stumbled over themselves and caused 3 separate ankle injuries. The first time I sprained my ankle, I was 10km away from the finish line of a 500km charity cycle across Southeast Asia. The second time, I broke my ankle just hours into a romantic getaway. We spent most of the weekend at the hospital! I was then immobilised in a Moon Boot until the week before I was to lead a work trip trekking the Inca Trail, Peru, which sure put a complete stop to my training plan! And now, just 2 weeks from what will be the most intense and transforming yoga practice of my life at the source of Ashtanga, KPJAYI Mysore, I have sprained the same ankle. Although it feels quite personal and planned by the universe to spite me, approximately 200,000 people sprain or break their ankle each day!
