  1. This (yoga) is something I need to get back into. It’s been awhile since I’ve done any of the exercises of course I can’t do any strenuous pose, some of the poses I can do I especially love the child pose, I suffer with chronic pain due to Degenerative Disc Disease because of Osteoarthritis, so these poses could be good especially for my back, I have lot of back pain.
