At the beginning of the pandemic, a local yoga teacher had no desire to teach her classes on Zoom. But, as things stretched out, she really missed this important part of her life. She faced the reality of virtual classes or no classes – finding both good and bad aspects, and learning to accept it all.
Everytime I hear someone utter those words “I’m not flexible, so I can’t practice yoga” I physically react, shake my head and utter “Yoga is for every BODY.”
With the covid-19 virus affected respiratory systems, I thought it might be nice to address some safe and simple breathing techniques that can be incorporated into a yoga practice.
I would like to share a story with you…
Beth C. found my chair yoga classes on FB live and is now a dedicated student. Five years ago, Beth had a cervical spine fracture resulting in right-sided paralysis and spasticity. She has been through years of rehabilitation and swims almost everyday in the Summer. Since early June, Beth and I have been meeting twice weekly on Zoom for 30-minute chair yoga sessions.
