chronic pain, yoga 

are there any people on here? how about people? any chronic pain yoga people? im looking to focus my practice on easy poses to reconnect with yoga after a long break due to injuries. PAIN YOGIS WHAT ARE YOUR FAV POSES

@thatgirllily I do a couple of easy flow exercises - moving slowly from child's pose to upward dog, back and forth. Then I'll do cat to cow. The combination is sort of like getting a wave through your spine. I'll finish off with a hip opening pose like happy baby or cobbler. This is what I call my 'bed yoga' sequence because i can do it in bed before I fall asleep or after I wake up. I have a pretty hard futon, so your mileage may vary. These have helped me.

@thatgirllily oh, yeah, I came up with this sequence because I can't do sun salutation, or most other yoga, especially on a 'no spoon' day. I even took a class that said , 'good for beginners, seniors and disabled people.' The instructors knew yoga, but not how to adapt poses for said target audience.
