Chair Yoga to Work off that Turkey

chair yoga

Remember ‘pigeon’ pose I shared a couple weeks ago? Well now here is a way to stretch even more!

IF YOU CAN NOT LIFT LEG NO WORRIES CAN BE MODIFIED

  1. Sit up straight in chair or wheelchair, with the back off the chair
  2. Make sure feet are shoulder width apart
  3. Bring left leg onto the right knee
  4. Inhale, lower body down slowly from hips, only go as far as you can, you should feel stretch in your hips & groin area mostly
  5. Come back up, slowly exhaling, return to straight posture, Repeat 3 times then go to other legs

*if you CAN lift leg but need a little help, use a stretchy exercise band to help lift the leg, just place underfoot securely & lift*

MODIFICATION

  1. Sit up straight in chair or wheelchair, with the back off the chair
  2. Cross feet at ankles, place one hand on each knee
  3. Inhale, lower body down slowly from hips, only go as far as you can, you will feel this in your back & legs
  4. Come back up, slowly exhaling, return to straight posture, Repeat 3 times
