Aerobic walking recommended by cardiologists is a really brisk walk, covering about 5 km in 50 minutes. I doubt if we can replicate it indoors without using a TM.
As for Yoga, yes, it is an option, but, can one learn it after losing sight ? The various asanas have to be performed very deliberately and with regulated breathing and can trainers communicate all these nuances effectively to us ? And, is Yoga really aerobic the same way that walking, jogging or swimming are ?
Sorry for posing more queries. (smile)

I do pace inside my house whenever I am free and listening to music or some
I get some exercise. Yoga is of course accessable and can be performed by
one selfwithout taking assistance from anyone.
