*Again, please be careful out there. These are just videos I've found useful personally.
I have no expertise in anything and can't specifically recommend them to anybody else.
My doctor said yoga would be fine for me, even with my back issues,
and I try to move slowly and carefully.
I know which activities I should avoid.
Again, know your body, know your limitations, and be careful.
That said, I love yoga!


  1. You have certainly found a good compliment of yoga exercises. I hope to feel better soon so I can try a few of these.

    1. These are poses I do every day, so if they aren't included in a video I've done I can be reminded of which ones I still need to do. Some of these are easier than others, of course. In Locust Pose, for example, I still can't raise my feet.

  2. Wow! I haven't even searched for gentle senior yoga yet--LOL! You go, Girl!!

    1. There are definitely videos out there for gentle senior and/or seated yoga. I do love yoga. I've never been one for the faster, more aggressive exercise-style of yoga. I tend to like a slower style and generally just pick a single pose and hold it before doing a different one. The yoga at my local senior center is too fast and aggressive for me.
