Yoga for Limited Mobility
How to Do Yoga with Limited Mobility or a Physical Disability
Remember your goals.What you want to achieve with yoga? You can use yoga to increase agility, build muscle, help heal your inner self, relax, build happiness and enlightenment.
Practice yoga as it is good for you.Accept your physical limits. Find a path of yoga that suits you and is possible for you.
Start with simple yoga exercises (yoga for beginners, Chair Yoga).Avoid the exercises that you can not do, and for others only push yourself as far as it is comfortable. Move only gently and carefully. Stop if pain develops. Pain is a warning signal. They show you what works and what does not.
- As you get to know what moves work and don't work for you, develop an exercise program from exercises that you can practice and that are useful for your goals.
Visualize the exercises in your body and think the name of the exercise several times as a mantra.Visualization triggers internal stress and activates the kundalini energy (chakras, energy channels). If you can not do yoga physically, visualize the exercises. This also has a great effect. It brings inner peace, strength, happiness and enlightenment.
Think positive.Observe your thoughts. Some thoughts do you no good. They rob you your peace, your happiness and strength. Stop it. Think as long the mantra "stop", until the negative thoughts disappear. Or find a positive thoughts. "My negative thought is ... My positive thought is ..(I am strong. I go my way.)"
Meditate.Yoga was originally by Patanjali only positive thinking, breathing exercises and meditation. That's enough for the path of enlightenment. You only have to do this with stamina and wisdom (everything at the right moment and in the right way). Goraksha then added some physical exercises (mainly sitting postures) and especially Kundalini exercises (visualization, breathing, inner sound, mudras, bandhas).
Do Bhakti-yoga.Connect yourself every day with your spiritual role model. Visualize yourself as your role model (Shiva, Buddha or Jesus). Behave as your role model. Think the mantra "I am Shiva (Shivo ham). I am Buddha. I am Jesus. I am everything." Find your personal enlightened master. Visit his events or watch his videos on the internet. Read his books. Feel connected to him and he will bring you into the light and help you on your way.
Do Karma-yoga.Send every day all beings light. Wish a happy world. Do a good deed. Even that brings you into love and enlightenment. Move a hand in blessing and think, "I send light to (name). May all people be happy. May the world be happy."

- Matsyendra was the founder of the Hatha Yoga. He was a fisherman. One day he sat in his boot in the sea. Suddenly he heard an inner voice. Shiva told him how to practice Yoga to get inner peace and happiness. Matsyendra followed his inner voice and after a few years he became enlightened. He left his fisher hut to tell all people in India from the great gift he got.
- In a big forest he heard a man cry. The prince Gaurangi was captured by his enemies. They cut off his arms and legs. So he lay there without no hope. Matsyendra helped him and showed him how to breathe with the muscles of his abdomen and how to meditate. Thus Caurangi could preserve his health. After some years he reached enlightenment and was always happy. Everyone can practise Hatha-Yoga.There is an exercise for everybody.
