Bed yoga is for EVERY body. But, practicing yoga in bed can be a great way for folks to get some extra support or reduce the risk of injury from falls or exertion. In this practice, we explore how bed yoga can be both gentle and strengthening. Just because you’re laying in bed, doesn’t mean it has to be easy!
You may want to have some extra pillows available to support your head or knees, but this is really for personal preference. Also, I recommend having a yoga block or something sturdy you can place between your thighs. As with most Fat Kid Yoga Club practices, we begin with sensing the body and bringing our awareness within. Then, we add gentle movements to warm up the body and add some supine sun salutations. Although we won’t go upside down, this practice will help to build core strength and upper body strength as well as offer the energizing feeling for practicing and handstand!
