I plan to restart practicing Yoga at home. When I took Yoga classes at the Y, last year, I was uncomfortable because others in the class were experienced Yogis. At some point, I may return to classes. But right now my Yoga comfort-level is withYoga Videos and the Breast Cancer Authority Blog.
Learn A Safe & Supported Yoga Pose For Breast Cancer – Side Child Restorative Yoga Pose.
By Diana Ross, E-RYT 500, Founder of Breast Cancer Yoga.
The purpose of a relaxed pose may be obvious. Relaxation is intended to rid the body and mind of the negative effects of stress, unwanted thoughts, anxiety, fear, and then to create a state of rest. You will love this pose. Deep relaxation is a definite result of this well supported pose. It relieves anxiety and promotes well-being while balancing the healing response of the autonomic nervous system.
- Promotes progressive muscle relaxation
- Brings the nervous system back into balance
- Strengthens the relaxation response in your day-to-day life
- Relieves anxiety and promotes well-being
- Facilitates parasympathetic healing response
- Has a “moment-to-moment” experience for both internal and external
- Reduces strain on sciatica joints
- Begin on back, then roll onto right side, extend right lower leg…

It looks quite comfortable. I may have to kick Mr. Thomas out of our bed.

I enjoy following this blog, ordered book today, and look forward to it arriving the first week in August. Thanks for letting me know about the book.
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.
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.
You’re welcome. I’m thinking about trying Chair Yoga at a local YMCA.
I look forward to the possibility of an upcoming post from you on your Chair Yoga experience at the UMCA.
Casey, I do plan to do a followup on my Yoga experiences, the good, the bad, and the sometimes ugly. Thank you for reading my blog.
