Namaskar Rashmi,

I wish you much success with your blog and your research. I agree with Molly's opinion about a special kind of yoga teacher for those who had a stroke in the past. It takes some previous training in therapeutic applications of yoga for neurological disorders.

It also takes a teacher who listens and one who has the power of innovative thinking to work with people who have had strokes. Your blog is a good start for researching this subject and I wish you the best in your research. Yoga therapy is still in its pioneering stage at this point.

One last point, a yoga teacher with a heart of compassion and some chair yoga knowledge will see students who previously had strokes make gradual progress. It's the heart of compassion that makes us listen, discover, and make progress.

Eventually Yoga therapy will become a structured science built upon the medicine of east and west.

Om Shanti,
