There are two sides to Trish Stratus. On one hand, she's a yoga instructor and fitness icon - calm, centred, the picture of tranquility. On the other hand, she's a butt-kicking, smack-talking wrestling superstar. But hey, Trish is just like the rest of us: she's got layers. And what's wrong with a butt-kicking sex symbol becoming an advocate for health and wellness?
Trish was working as a fitness model in Ontario when she was recruited by the WWE, but she always wanted to be more than just a pretty face. Over the years, she earned her credibility, wrestling her way to seven championship titles.
But success came with a heavy physical price: dislocated shoulder, fractured nose, a missing tooth, and a herniated disc in her back that forced her to retire.
So what do you do when you're 30 years old, and your career is over? In Trish's case, she focused on the thing that helped most with her rehab: yoga, which uncovered a spiritual side she didn't know she had. But is yoga right for everyone? And given her new Zen-like state of mind, how does she feel about her legacy in wrestling?
