Yoga Asana Variations

Some individuals have physical limitations that do not allow them to perform the yoga poses in the "standard" forms. We used a specific set of variations to allow persons with limitations to perform the poses more comfortably and safely.

We list these variations here, organized by body regions (e.g., variations to accommodate limitations in neck movement, shoulder movement, etc.)

  • Click on each region of the body (e.g., neck) to see a list of the YESS poses that are affected by limitations in that region and the variations that we used to accommodate limitations in each body region.
