(FOXNEWS) — A Maryland woman who suffered a massive stroke after reportedly tearing an artery while attempting a yoga handstand pose said she is still suffering from memory loss and severe headaches but has not given up her passion for the meditative practice.

“After decades of focusing on working out and my diet and making as many healthy decisions as I could for my body, having a stroke by doing yoga just didn’t seem fair,” Rebecca Leigh, 40, told SWNS.
