5.0 out of 5 stars So easy even my granny could do it. February 6, 2012
By Xan

I love this set of videos! I am admittedly a gamer and with that in mind I know I am a bit on the lazy/sluggish side at times. But these videos are so relaxing and soothing that even I can get into them. I do suffer from back issues due to large bust and the back pain video in the set is awesome and does work! I get done that tape and am like jello it is great. Peggy has a calming voice and she is not some skinny pole woman doing impossible poses that leave us beginners spending the rest of the day scraping our chins off the ground. The poses have modifications for those that are even lest elastic than myself so it really is easy and effective in the same box!

If you have back issues and pain this portion of the package will certainly help you....I have yet to try the arthritis one and actually hope I have a few more years before I truly need that one. But all videos by Peggy that I have watched while trying to become a human pretzel are awesome and relaxing. I would recommend this for anyone that wants to begin the yoga process but needs to take it slow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yoga for the rest of us May 4, 2012
By paula

This is probably the best yoga dvd I own at this time in my life. I have arthritis in my back and knees and this has been very helpful in making me more mobile. It is slow and purposeful. It shows the moves in different variations, according to your skill level. I especially like the behind the scenes stories, they are motivational.

When I went looking for a beginning yoga DVD to help me gain flexibility, I borrowed this from my public library. Peggy gives very clear descriptions of her movements and alternatives for those of us who are older, less limber and have issues with knees, backs, etc. I found her manner to be very soothing and relaxing. And even though the movements do not seem that challenging at first, I did feel the effects over the next few days. My body felt like it was getting a good stretch so I decided to purchase this set.

5.0 out of 5 stars As described, but so much more February 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
The DVD is an excellent resource for beginners of all types. Although the entire sessions is almost two hours long, it is broken up into easy to follow segments, so you can do a portion of the video whenever you have time. It has been very useful in increasing my flexibility, particularly in my hands as I type so much. Well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Yoga CDs August 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
I saw Peggy Cappy on PBS and decided to buy these tapes. Her voice is very soothing and the instructions are easy to follow. However, some of the poses are very difficult for me as I am 65 and have never really exercised before. My bad!

After using the cd for backs, I noticed that I felt better in just one day. Not "cured," of course, but noticeably better. The sunshine salutations are also very good, especially the ones using a chair for someone like me . . . these are on the tape for poses to help the heart. I have not looked at the cd for arthritis yet.

I notice it is best to watch each cd all the way through first (the parts on the poses) because sometimes when attempting to do the pose, it is difficult to see the tv screen. She does go a little fast at times, but then I go back and review the poses and do them slowly, and that helps. I would definitely recommend any of Peggy Cappy's Yoga cd's!

the explanation is very good, however it would be nice to skip through it and just do a straight routine after I learn it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yoga
These are very nice videos, I do yoga already, so goes pretty slow for someone who is already familiar, but showing me some poses I have never done before, so still good.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring
Just too much elaboration over simple moves. Takes forever to listen about how to lift one leg up this way or that. She is a wonderful woman, but the exercises put me to sleep.
