Adapted Sun Salutation with the Wall
This is a gentle standing sequence done at a wall for balance support. It helps develop movement-to-breath coordination, builds upper body strength, encourages range of motion in the shoulder, and balance practice by shifting body weight from one leg to the other. In addition, someone might vary intensity building strength and endurance by changing the distance to the wall. Practitioners could modify the movements to be done seated in a chair, using one chair in front instead of a wall.
