Hi, I'm Amy Newman, Fitness Expert for Golds Gym and Creator of the Perfect 10 Workout. I'm going to show you some Hatha poses in Yoga for the disabled. Here's some poses that you can do with your disabled especially from the waist down. Just stretch up tall in your spine as long as you can, pulling your head up right through the crown of your head, relaxing your shoulders, close your eyes and breath deep into your body. "Hmmm", "Hhhhhh". Let your breath and your mind take you away and relax you. "Hmmm"; with each inhalation stretching up through the spine, with each exhalation relaxing more and more. "Hmmm", "Hhhhh". Open your eyes, bring your head to one side, breath deep; let your neck open up. Slowly turn your chin to that shoulder and slowly rotate your chin across your chest to the center exhaling. Hold your chin in the center, relax your shoulders, but keep your back stretched up straight. Slide your chin over to the other shoulder and bring that ear down. Breath into your body. Slowly rotate your head gently back from one shoulder to the other. And then go in the other direction. Breath deep into your body and slowly do a couple of rotations very slow around; breathing, relaxing your shoulders, relaxing your mind. Going in the other direction nice and slow, never doing anything too fast, very slow take your time. If something doesn't feel right, don't do it and always consult your doctor before you do any Yoga exercise. Stretch your head up and you can reach behind you, doing a twist, lengthening up through the spine, shoulders down. When you get into your pose, try to relax as much as you can. You want to have your arm crossed over so you can get a full twist; looking over your shoulder, yet keeping your neck pulled out of your shoulders, breathing deeply. Then, you want to go to the other side and this is great for the organs, opening them up, breathing into your organs, relaxing your mind, helping your body staying nice and flexible. I'm Amy Newman, Fitness Instructor/Creator of the Perfect 10 Workout. Thank you for joining me as I show you some Hatha Yoga exercises you can do if you're disabled.
