Chair Exercises / Surgery Recovery

There are a many segments of our DVDs which can be sitting in a chair. We recommend: the \"Rise and Spine\" segment of Kundalini Yoga for Beginners & Beyond (the last exercise should be done very gently), the second segment of Yoga Cleanse, the \"Headache Helper\" segment on Yoga Quick Fixes (deleting the segment on the floor), and the breathing meditation on the PM segment (some of these exercises can be done sitting in a chair) of AM/PM Yoga. On your back you can have your arms straight up in the air, palms facing, and move your hands to (but not touching) and away from each other with the Breath of Fire (this exercise is in the \"Immune Invigorator\" set on our Yoga House Call DVD).
We also recommend Sitali Pranayam at this time: Inhale through a curled tongue, exhale nose, thinking Ra Ma Da Sa on the inhale and Sa Say So Hung on the exhale (this is very powerful for healing).
As you lies on your back you can also imagine a sun at the navel: as you inhales it gets hotter and denser and as you exhale you can imagine healing energy emanating out of it.

Yoga for Beginners: Stretch, Strengthen & Be Stress Free will be a good DVD to begin with as soon as you are ready for a fuller practice.

Please go at your own pace, rest when you need to, and always listen to your body. Even a few minutes a day will make a big difference and we feel that by being proactive now she can be healthier than you have ever been.
