ADAPTIVE YOGA VIDEOS
For your home practice
PLEASE READ BEFORE STARTING YOUR YOGA PRACTICE::
These adaptive yoga sequences are intended for people with a variety of mobility restrictions. While some people may be able to practice on their own, others may need assistance. Do what you can with what’s available to you. If a pose isn’t working for you, try a smaller range of motion or get creative modifying the pose to fit your needs. Even if you don’t have time for a full practice, choosing three or four poses is still beneficial. And keep your computer close so you can pause or rewind easily.
We like to use a lot of props in adaptive yoga but until you decide to invest in your own props, here are some good stand-ins:
- Strap:: belt or tie
- Bolster:: a couple pillows or folded blanket
- Sandbag:: a big bag of dry rice or beans (or dry rice or beans in a tube sock)
- Blocks:: books
