  1. Stand straight, feet shoulder width apart and raise one leg this time in front of you.
  2. Bending the leg whilst raising, keep abdominals engaged throughout.
  3. Bring your leg back down to the floor and then switch legs, repeat.

Again do as many repetitions as you are comfortable with!

  1. I teach yoga, and I’m always looking for different ideas of exercises that can help my students. I appreciate you sharing your own experience with each of the exercises. It helps me understand the challenges that people with arthritis are facing and tailor my practices better for them. Also, I like that you encourage people to not over-train – that can cause more harm than good!
