#6 "Yoga Minute" Seated Sun Salutation

This variation of Seated Sun Salutation is several arm movements that flow together. In this "Yoga Minute" video I'm demoing gentle movements effecting the arms, chest, shoulders, and back with gentle flowing movements.
Keep the feet grounded. Feeling the weight evenly between both feet.
When the arms are opening to the sides take them back as far as comfortable. This will stretch many of the muscles involved in the respiratory system opening the chest allowing you to achieve a full breath.

Every time the hands are moving back to the heart center you're exhaling and when the hands and arms are moving away from the heart you're inhaling. If you reverse the breathing, don't worry, continue with the smooth Sun Salutation movements without worrying about the breath.

One way Seated Sun Salutation is great is by giving you a boost of energy if you work at a desk all day.

These videos are designed for inactive beginners, seniors, baby Boomers and people with most any illness or injury. The majority of these poses are in a chair and most can be done from a wheelchair. I’ll also be posting these videos on my You Tube Channel “Yoga Chuck” and Facebook page "Yoga Chuck”.
All poses should be a No Pain No Pain practice and avoid having discomfort. How long to hold the pose: If pain is above a 5 on a scale of 0-10, then only hold the pose 10-15 seconds, you can repeat this multiple times. If your pain level is 5 or lower you can hold the pose 30 seconds to 1 minute. Listen to your body and make adjustments as needed. Explanation: If you’re pain level is above a 5 then the muscles are actually tightening to protect themselves, so you will no longer be stretching them. This is why you should come in and out of the pose multiple times in order to get a stretch with pain level above a 5.

Happy & Healthy,
Yoga Chuck
