Start where you are and go from there...

According to Psychology Today "Chronic pain triggers changes in brain structure that are linked to depression, anxiety, and impaired cognitive function." Catherine Bushnell, PhD, a scientific director of the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) where she oversees a program on the brain’s role in perceiving, modifying, and managing pain summed up her findings saying,"Practicing yoga has the opposite effect on the brain and can relieve chronic pain."

This integrative class allows those who cannot get on the floor for whatever reason to participate. (Or perhaps you simply need for balance or to assist you up and down off the floor.)
