All sitting yoga poses can be conducted by anyone who wants to enjoy yoga whether they use a wheelchair for mobility or not. You can use a dining chair for seated yoga, for example. However, if you want to enjoy yoga from a wheelchair, then it is preferable to do so from a lightweight chair that offers plenty of support. This is exactly why the award-winning STRONGBACK range of products is so ideally suited for wheelchair yoga.
Below, you will find some chair yoga exercises you can try out. Note that, whether you are talking about wheelchair yoga for beginners or wheelchair yoga for seniors, the benefits are not simply physical. Wheelchair yoga can also help to improve your mental outlook by offering a sense of accomplishment and allowing you to more easily release the stresses of daily life. Before starting the sitting yoga poses outlined below, inhale and exhale mindfully. Accept the best version of yourself with each in-breath and release worries and concerns with each outward breath. Breath deeply and evenly. Work within your body's capabilities. This is as true for wheelchair yoga as it is any other form of yoga. When you feel relaxed and ready, proceed with the first pose.
