Learn A Yoga Pose For Breast Cancer – Side Child Restorative Yoga Pose

  1. This (yoga) is something I need to get back into. It’s been awhile since I’ve done any of the exercises of course I can’t do any strenuous pose, some of the poses I can do I especially love the child pose, I suffer with chronic pain due to Degenerative Disc Disease because of Osteoarthritis, so these poses could be good especially for my back, I have lot of back pain. Anyway good luck with your practice.

    1. I plan to spend more practicing Yoga with DVDs I purchased several years ago from Amazon.com: Chair Yoga:A Seated Practice- with Ann Richmond and Easy Yoga for Arthritis; and, I purchased Yoga for Arthritis from the Arthritis Foundation. Hopefully, in time I can move up to higher level poses. Thank you for your comments.
