Thanks, LadyKIT!
When you say her nerves are leaking energy, do you mean all the energy her body is expending in healing? Or do you mean something else? Just curious.

Also, if you have any ideas on specific yoga poses for someone who cannot stand (without walker/someone to hold on to) that would be great. If you have names of poses I can research them (or call some yoga-savvy friends in to show me). Most of the poses I personally know are standing/balance/strength poses. Sometimes I have her get in the ‘child’s pose’ to stretch out her back and to relax.

We do dry-land therapy 2x a day at home (1x on pool days), consisting of various leg movements and assisted leg movements (for more range) and stretches. But it is rather dull and some yoga might help break it up, and also help with keeping calm and relaxed through breathing.

I love this thread, it is so positive and pro-active. I like that it is focused on what you can do, not what you can’t. That is the attitude we are trying to keep.
