What is Stretch Yoga?

Hi om and dalub and anyone else yoga experts--

I got an e-mail from a dr. 's newsletter I saw a few times about something called stretch yoga?  Said it is good for older people or those with pain.  I can definitely not do any twisting or sharp movements.  I try to stretch a bit in my bed, since I'm there about  90% of the day,

What do you think?

cindee it is really just a slower more focused on breath prqactice with gentle long stretches of whatever it is you discover you can stretch. Explore and stretch!  Fingers---toes---face---butt!  whatever--eyers----ears---!!!!___???   stretching brings nutrient rich blood to where you stretch---healing oxygen and prana *(life energy). Go slow---no hurry----it is to be enjoyed.  Not a chore---look forward to doing it ios the attitude----omhome

I will definitely try-- my legs are extremely stiff and painful, I can't straighten them and they swell--esp. around the knees to the feet.  they are so tight,  Would the stretching loosen them up?  I'll look it up.  Thanks.

I know for me, I try and do light stretching while I am in a warm bathtub. Just light stretching, anything that feels comfortable but just light stretching, like the ankles, and leg muscles. Don't forget to drink a lot of water afterwards. Keep up on the vitamins also. I know another damned pill is annoying but at least the vitamins have a benefit. Keep up the positive attitude and let the brain do the rest. It will tell you when it has had enough.

At first i did not unerstand when you said see page 4. Then it clicked and i came to page 4. Stretching exercises are good. I have tried to shake the ears by manipulating the back of my head(some web suggeted) I could not shaking ears but I could feel that it can be done if we persist. Putting the tongue in the back of front teeth-upper and lower-one can stretch/vibrate the head and even some part of torso. Trying to align upper and lower front teeth or gum can help to stretch the whole body(sort of soft vibration) Stretching every inch of a body is a very pleasant experience or even a good daiy work out.I think it is called progressive relaxation.
