Yoga is proving to be a hugely important part of my rehab. I can still rarely do more than 10 minutes at a time, but on good days I do a couple of minutes of various yoga poses several times a day. It can be either wonderfully invigorating when I need a bit of a boost or alternately it can be relaxing and calming when that instead is what is called for.
I’m sharing a very easy video that shows how simple beginning yoga can be. Even simple routines like the one below can result in powerful energy shifts. If one is a beginner getting started very slowly on youtube works! You can learn little bits at your own pace.
This video is instructions for a short session. I do recommend you try doing each exercise for at least a couple of minutes extending the whole series to about 10 minutes or so. Doing things slowly and deliberately while breathing with the movements helps bring about deep relaxation.
