I agree with Zorbs. Your husband should be sure to tell your instructor about his injuries before class, too.

The one type I wouldn't recommend for your husband is ashtanga/vinyasa/Power yoga, because that tends to involve flowing quickly through the moves (meaning it's harder to correct alignment) and a lot of strain on the shoulders.

Your best bet are live classes in a yoga studio where the instructor can tell your husband how to modify poses.

Hello, I recently stopped smoking and gained ,for me, a bit of unwanted weight. I have lost a lot of it but with the weight I became very stiff and out of shape.I am thinking of starting Yoga but I would like my husband to be able to do it with me, He has a torn labrum and shoulder impingement. Is there a style we could try that would be better for us?
