Featured Video: Zelinda Yañez's Sequence for Limited Mobility

In this video, Zelinda teaches one of her students a half-hour sequence that gives someone with mobility issues—whether temporary, such as a due broken, sprained, or injured ankle or foot, or permanent due to other conditions—access to a well-rounded practice. Practicing on a platform provides a really convenient way for you to move from seated to reclined positions. If you were practicing at home, maybe you could use a low table, such as a coffee table, the same way. —Nina
