Namaskar Renee,

Based on what you have said, and my mental picture of the situation, I hope this will help.

On the edges of her Yoga mat, you will want to have a good variety of Yoga props available.

Softer blankets of various heights under her back, low neck, and possibly her head, might help her in Matsyasana (Fish).

Depending on what you need for the height of the Yoga prop, chairs, a bench or two, wood blocks, foam blocks, low stools, and firm blankets, will all come in handy.

Many of these will come in handy for her forearms and hands, but they will be useful for transitioning from one position to the next, as well.

There is a great book, which will make you much more creative with the use of props called: "Yoga: The Path To Holistic Health," by BKS Iyengar and Daphne Razazan.

Please let us know how you do.

Om Shanti,
