Stratus talks to WWE.com about her latest endeavor, a yoga program titled “Stratusphere Yoga”
I had been told I was experiencing degenerative disc damage, and when I got squished by Viscera in the ring in 2005, that’s when the damage caught up with me. I was put out of action and diagnosed with a herniated disc. The doctors said I had to have surgery, but I knew there had to be another way to fix it. I did some physical therapy, which did not work. And then I found yoga. Yoga reversed the damage, allowed me to come back and finish out my career. Yoga has been in my life ever since.
