Hi, I'm Amy Newman, Fitness Expert/Creator of the Perfect 10 Workout, and we are here now at Gold's Gym, and I'm going to show you how you can workout if you're obese or a senior in Yoga. I'm going to show you a series of sequences that you can do if you're obese or a senior and you're working in Yoga. We're going to first start off in Mountain Pose with our feet right underneath our shoulders. Stretch up right through the spine, tucking your tail bone under, lengthening through the spine, the crown of the head. Then, you want to start take in deep breaths and exhale slowly. As you breath, relax your mind and just be in the moment. You want to feel your body definitely balanced on both sides of your feet. You want to be totally in sync with your body as you stand in Mountain Pose. Then, taking a deep breath, "Hmmm", inhale stretch up, exhale, bring your palms down right in front of your chest, "Shhhh". Inhale lift up, "Hmmm", exhale, bring your arms around, "Hhhhh". Inhale stretch up, "Hmmm", exhale, bring your palms down in front of your heart, "Wheww". Inhale stretch up and hold it, "Hmmm"; exhale, stretch gently to the side, exhaling, "Wheww". Bend the elbows and squeeze your waist, "Wheww". Inhale stretch up, "Hmmm"; exhale to the other side, "Wheww", bend the elbows, squeeze your waist, exhaling completely. Then inhale stretch up, "Hmmm", exhale bring your arms down, "Hhhhhh", back into Mountain Pose. Close your eyes, stretch your neck up. Taking a deep breath, then bring your arms back up again, "Hmmm", press your palms together, look up, exhale, "Hhhhh". Inhale, look straight ahead; exhale, bring your palms back down again, "Wheww". I'm Amy Newman. Thanks for joining me as I show you how you can do a sequence of Yoga exercises if you're obese or senior.
