Anyone can do this exercise, especially:

* Obese people (this is very suitable as you need low impact workouts)
* Beginners
* Pregnant women (be careful and avoid the last exercise as it requires you to balance on one leg)
* Seniors (can practice slowly and cautiously)
* Knee pain (keep your knees and ankles in one line, if your knee hurts during any of the practices, avoid it)


There are not many contraindications for this because these are simple exercises. However, if you are struggling with severe joint pain or arthritis, ankle or heel pain, avoid these exercises.
