-- Kathleen created this routine for her parents, who are both in their 80ʼs and have sustained all kinds of back surgery, shoulder surgery, knee surgery and hip pain. She wanted them to be able to get a great stretch and workout, without any further injury. Too often, yoga is designed for the athlete who isnʼt intimidated by balancing or standing postures, unfortunately, this eliminates most elderly and/or injured from participating. Kathleen has found that the ʻgroundworkʼ
is the greatest foundation for all yoga, and when props (i.e. bolsters and straps) are brought in to support the pose, an incredible relaxation takes place. She has blended together all of her favorite yoga poses that are done on the ground, and included a challenging core routine to strengthen the abs and increase the flexibility in the lower back. This routine is for everyone who wants to unwind, relax and and burn calories. It will lengthen and strengthen every part of the body, and it will feel like you just had a mini vacation without waiting in a security checkpoint. http://www.KinmontPhoto.com
