Did A Yoga Handstand Give Woman A Stroke?

An Instagram influencer and avid yogi is offering a warning after she said she suffered a stroke while attempting a particularly tricky yoga pose. Rebecca Leigh of Gambrills, Maryland, posted on Instagram that she had been doing what’s known as a “hollowback handstand” when she suddenly felt pain in her neck and head. After two days of feeling “strange,” she noticed her right eye drooping and her pupils were different sizes. She went to the emergency room, where she was diagnosed with a stroke.
