Teaching Yoga to Students Recovering from Surgery or Living with Chronic Illness: Simplified Sun Salutations

If a Yoga student is unable to stand or raise his or her arms overhead during the Sun Salutations, simply participating in the vinyasa through the breath will help to give your student a sense of inclusion in the class. Over time, the student may be able to stand and raise his or her arms overhead, and then flow into Standing Forward Fold.
