Yoga
« on: July 31, 2015, 03:35:21 PM »
Someone I know on Facebook put up a video about an American Veteran who was told he would never walk unassisted alone again.  He believed the doctor and weight piled on him until he found someone to encouraged him to try Yoga.  The video shows his journey and less than a year later he had lost all the weight he'd put on and not only could he walk again, but he was able to run again too!

I asked the person who posted the video if there was anything Yoga-wise I could do with my back against a wall.

She gave me the URL to Yoga stuff I can do in bed and I haven't looked back!

I'm not saying it is easy but it's not hard by any stretch of the imagination either!

I printed off the thingamebobs on Tuesday afternoon and tried them for the first time in my life on Wednesday... wowsers!  I was more awake and positive and motivated than I have been for literally years and I'm a total convert now!

It's like with the vitamin B12 injections - a combination of the injections and the Yoga have both done wonders for me!  I can't recommend them highly enough!

It doesn't cost a penny either, you just need a bed to do it on and a printer with cartridges to print it out if you want to!

Pip - I've saved the video to my laptop if you want to see it first?  There's also a URL to the stretches for you to see too if that's OK?

Give it a try and hopefully it'll inspire you to try it too!   ;D   :happy0158:   :cheerleader:

It's okay to put the video up on the site and I would certainly like a go at doing yoga  :confused0062: - it's amazing about the veteran.  Just goes to prove that doctors can get it wrong and I hope he feels proud of himself :smile:

Okey dokey, the video is hopefully within the message and the exercises I'm doing are http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/22/yoga-in-bed_n_3950206.html

This is hopefully the video if I've done it right!  Nope, the file is too large so I'll try and find it on YouTube instead   :bash:

Try this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qX9FSZJu448 for the video?
