Yoga helps make my life better. Before yoga, my lower body was stiff from the radiation treatments and I couldn’t bend over at all. My muscles were so tight, they felt as though they would tear. It took a year of daily practice to get me limber. I still have balance problems, along with neuropathy but I feel better and that’s all that matters to me. My muscles will stiffen up again if I don’t practice daily, so yoga is at the top of my “to-do” list, no matter what else is going on. It’s an important part of my self-care routine, something I didn’t do enough of before I got sick.
There are many yoga videos on You Tube and that’s where I find teachers who I can keep up with. Going to a physical class is too hard for me because of my mobility. I’m sure the instructors wouldn’t be happy if I scratched their beautiful floors with my walker either, so practicing at home is a good option for me.
I’ve already shared a few yoga videos with you, but in my opinion, it’s always good to have many choices, and I don’t know about you, but I like to mix things up. Doing the same poses everyday gets a bit boring, so here’s a new video especially for seniors and those of us who want a more nurturing, relaxed yoga.
Be well and practice daily self-care,
