Born and raised in Jackson, Wyoming, Kira Brazinski has a great love for the outdoors. She enjoys hiking, skiing, biking, and also works as a yoga instructor—even though Brazinski was born without a left leg, due to a rare birth defect, and uses a prosthetic leg to walk. Still, she continues to pursue ambitious athletic goals, like her childhood dream of climbing the iconic Grand Teton. In A Grand Journey, from Après Visuals, we get an intimate look into this adaptive athlete’s unique path to the summit.
