Namaskar Luci,

If your student can get up and down off the floor easily, she probably want to maintain her level of mobility. It's completely understandable that here mobility is a factor in living an independent life. If she is struggling to avoid falling when getting up, then she needs to consider using a chair.

About ways for her to sit on the floor and keep the spine straight. She needs blankets and bolsters for the postures you mention. I'll also send an Email to Paul and ask him to consider doing a short web clip for next week's yoga teacher newsletter. The point being we can learn more a lot by watching a video on this subject.

Peace,
Gator
