Editorial Reviews

Ease your back and improve your posture! Just as Peggy Cappy has modified yoga poses in her earlier videos Yoga for the Rest of Us and More Yoga for the Rest of Us to make yoga accessible to every body, Peggy now turns her attention to stretches and exercises that are most beneficial to back care. Strong, healthy back muscles provide support for your spine and result in more energy and vitality in everything you do. Peggy shows you the right exercises and yoga poses to protect your back and improve your posture. These simple but powerful exercises stretch and strengthen back muscles and can alleviate back pain caused by muscular tension. And, with regular practice, they can keep back pain from returning. Peggy has designed this program in six easy-to-use segments, including leg and back stretches performed while positioned on your back, on your side, or on your belly. By using the exercises that work best for you, in no time at all, you will experience the difference that Back Care Basics can make.Bonus Segment! Let Peggy show you two restorative poses where, with the aid of a chair, pillows, or the wall, you simply relax and let gravity work for you, bringing comfort to your body and peace to your mind.

I love this DVD. I have fibromyalgia and my muscles are very stiff. Didn't think I could ever do yoga. This DVD shows modifications to poses to help people who are less flexible. It is also divided into sections so you can do however many sections you have time or energy for.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE this! Beginner Heaven! February 7, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I chose this DVD to inspire me to do the daily PT that my back needs after surgery. Peggy does a WONDERFUL job, leading even the novice through each pose, with variations for different levels. She gives you plenty of time to work into each pose and reminds you about every inhale and exhale! It has been 9 days and I am totally addicted! And this from someone who hates to exercise!!!! I can already feel the difference in my back: less pain and more stamina!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yoga for the Rest of Us - Back Care Basics October 11, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This Yoga DVD is just what it claims to be . . . for the rest of us . . . those more "mature" and/or wanting to begin using yoga for strength, flexibility, and relaxation. There is no distracting music, the descriptions of the poses are simple to follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DVD for lower back pain October 29, 2008
Format:DVD
I ordered a three DVD set by Peggy Cappy after reading the reviews, and Back Care Basics was one of them. I'm extremely glad I did. I've had constant lower back pain for a couple of years and had to sit down often to give my back a break. After doing the first 2 segments of the DVD - restorative poses and the stretches laying on your back - for a few days I noticed much less back pain. Being "flexibility challenged", I particularly appreciated the fact that I could choose the exercises that I found the most doable. These stretches help tremendously with back pain and I highly recommend this to anyone of any age.

4.0 out of 5 stars sound yoga help for back issues June 25, 2008
Format:DVD
I've studied dance, pilates, yoga, horseback ride & have a physically-demanding job. I've studied with a variety of teachers & professionals over the years, and have a pretty good sense of safe stretching & working one's body. Like most yoga DVD's & tapes, this one is appropriately slowly-paced (which always seems annoying after time). This session is also a little dark, but the stretches & explanations are clear, safe & effective. Peggy Cappy knows what she's doing & you're better off with her than many of the hacks out there charging a pretty sum to injure you in person. Pay attention to her instructions, your body's pain signals & breathe. For the average back-pain sufferer, Peggy, along some regular, safe sit-ups will help tremendously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good yoga CD for older people April 8, 2009
Format:DVD
This is the second Peggy Cappy Yoga CD that I have ordered. If you are young, and flexible, don't order this. It is geared for older, inflexible or overweight people. If you are any or all of the above, don't be afraid to try this (or the other Yoga For The Rest of Us CD). Just remember you don't have to do each pose as long as they do it, if you are just beginning and are out of shape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this DVD July 13, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The quality of this production is excellent, but it is the quality of the yoga instruction and the program with Peggy Cappy that are outstanding. The poses, the pacing, the demonstrations and the voiced instruction are excellent. It is clear, uncluttered and focused. I think this may be a perfect or near-perfect practice and the DVD presentation of it is a blessing for which I am very grateful. Most highly recommended. There are additional features, beyond the yoga programs, and some of it describes Peggy Cappy's attitude and philosophy about yoga and this is very refreshing and encouraging as well. There are also interviews or testimonials with some of her students - "real people" - and those are very inspiring and encouraging,too. Excellent. I love this DVD.

A good medium workout to stretch and breathe. Feel like we're getting a good stretch in but not at any physical pain cost.
