Yoga for people in pain video.. nice sit down routine

I finally got around to trying this out. You can look at the whole webinar series Here. This last one goes through a series of poses one can do with chronic pain. None of them are standing. I tried it out and liked it a lot. I could do this and then do my modified routine of my usual fifteen minutes of poses I can do. Or maybe alternating days would be better. He discusses in the beginning how we must hit that perfect pain spot... not under the pain where it will not help, or over our limit where this could cause problems with pain hypersensitivity but right at that spot where our body starts screaming HERE BE PAIN. Which is where I usually go with yoga. And people laugh at me when I say yoga is painful... it damn well is if you have chronic pain. And why I think it is the ideal exercise... I am capable of it, to some extent and I don't go way past where my limit is... you can tell right where the pain is and hold the pose just right There. The key of course is to keep your breathing even and your body relaxed while you do so. There are some poses I hold that the pain makes my breathing go ragged every time... must just be where the pain is I guess. But while I like this I need to work on some standing poses because I need to work on my actually balance and strength. Nevertheless, I'm keeping this one on hand... especially for migraine days where I cannot do anything too extensive without mind-blowing pain in the head.
