Matthew Sanford Adapted Yoga

Matthew Sanford releases a yoga DVD for traditional and disabled students alike.

Orono resident Matthew Sanford believes that “living vibrantly and feeling more alive is a birth right.” The founder of Mind Body Solutions, a non-profit yoga studio in Minnetonka, was paralyzed from the chest down at age 13 after a car accident; however, he is passionate about the practice of yoga and believes it can be done by anybody.


To help people live healthier, happier and more independent lives—especially those with physical disabilities—Sanford created a seated yoga practice DVD that he hopes will “make yoga accessible at its core” for a wide range of abilities.
