Recalling her difficult times, the 48-year-old actress said: “Without shedding light on the situation, besides my recovery, the one thing I kept asking my doctor was when I I could resume my yoga practice. I couldn’t do it immediately. I could only start with basic yoga at first. I knew that yoga would make a big difference to my mental and physical state, that’s why I I kept talking to my doctor about it. The day my trainer came home and did a class, I was in tears.
The actress added: “My body has suffered a lot of shocks [post the accident] and needed time to recover. When I could fit 45 minutes to an hour out of my yoga class, it made me so happy. Today, two and a half months have passed since the accident, and I have resumed my practice and I am so happy about it. Thank you, yoga.”
