Low Impact Yoga
Yoga connects the mind and body. Experts suggest that yoga can be great for people living with chronic pain. Practicing yoga regularly can improve flexibility, reduce inflammation, build strength, and help you cope with pain.
Yoga incorporates four core elements: physical postures, breathing, exercise, and meditation.
Remember to practice within your personal limits; there are always safe adaptations you can make when practicing yoga, so you don’t hurt yourself.

Gentle, relaxing yoga session with adaptations for practicing on the floor or in a chair.
You will need a yoga mat or a towel if you are following the session from the floor. Otherwise, you can follow along from a seated position in a chair.
Meditation incorporates an element of mindfulness. Being mindful is being aware of the present moment, escaping our tendency to hyper-focus on the past or the future.
Meditation is being mindful of your inner processes (e.g., your thoughts, your feelings). You bring your attention to the present moment in your mind and let go of any thoughts without judgement.
This practice has been found to help some people with chronic pain. Research has shown that meditation uses neural pathways that makes the brain less sensitive to pain and increases the use of pain-reducing neurotransmitters.
