Editorial Reviews

Join yoga teacher Peggy Cappy as she demonstrates movements to use at home to strengthen muscles and help increase mobility for people who are challenged by arthritis or the stiffness that comes with age or injury.

This new special is divided into seven easy-to-use segments that will leave you energized and feeling more flexible:
• Gentle Warm-ups to loosen shoulders, neck and back, legs and feet
• Warm-ups for the hands, wrists, and arms
• Standing poses
• Seated poses
• Reclining poses
• Deep relaxation techniques
• Meditation

This gentle yoga routine is perfect for people of all ages and abilities as Peggy's unique approach allows for three modifications for each pose: standing, seated or using a chair for support. Plus, Peggy incorporates meditation into this workout, a technique proven to increase our ability to deal with stress.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Liked It January 7, 2011
By Debbie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's not hard to see why this is one of the most popular yoga DVDs for arthritis. It gets your whole body moving in a very gentle manner- and exercise has been shown to definitely help with arthritis pain.

If you're worried about it being too challenging OR not being challenging enough, I'd have to say that's not a big concern here. The poses are shown 3 ways- the normal pose in standing, or a way using a chair to steady yourself if you have balance problems, and yet a third way where you do it in sitting.

There's really something in here for everyone regardless of your fitness level or if you have only one or two specific arthritic joints that give you trouble. Those with bad hand arthritis might also want to check out Treat Your Own Hand and Thumb Osteoarthritis.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am so glad I have this DVD. November 29, 2010
Format:DVD
I bought this DVD after being told I have mild Spinal Stenosis and need surgery. I may have to have the surgery someday, but not now. I do the reclining position stretches every morning. It has increased my range of motion and comfort. I had the flu and didn't do them for a few days. I could tell my range of motion decreased. It is the first time in my life that I want to do exercises because I feel better afterwards. I do the gentle warm up and hand exercises at the end of the day. I am amazed at how well my lower back feels just by rolling my shoulders. They are great exercises for anyone who sits at a computer. I haven't done any of the other exercises yet. It will be awhile before I do the standing or sun salutations. I would recommend this DVD to anyone who has lost motion because of arthritis. I am sure you will feel better with the help of this DVD.

2.0 out of 5 stars look somewhere else May 1, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this DVD even though it had mixed reviews. I wish I had purchased something else. Peggy Cappy obviously knows her material. I think the problem here is primarily with the editing and design. It would have been helpful to have an instructional section, followed by a practice section which you could turn on to work through. Instruction is mixed up with practice. With all her talking, the DVD is 110 minutes long! I don't have that amount of time, and constantly fast forwarding is really not user friendly. (The last portion of Sun Salutations abruptly cut off, as mentioned by another reviewer.) Her two helpers looked less than thrilled to be on the DVD! Come on - show a little enthusiasm! The lack of music, while not critical, is a legitimate complaint.
I won't give the DVD away, since I need to work on flexibility to counter my osteoarthritis. But if you are looking for a program, look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Way to "Get Moving" February 8, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have degenerative arthritis - had a spinal fusion and a hip replacement in 2010 and found this video a great way to "get moving" again. The movements are easy to follow, yet make me feel wonderful -especially all the stretching moves. I was looking for something "good for my body" and this Yoga Video certainly fit the bill. I am past middle age, was fairly active before my operations, have grown married children and found this the perfect thing to help me become active again - yoga - it's a wonderful thing! None of the exercises/poses/positions hurt my back or hip and my body felt wonderful after completing each step. The narrator's voice is very calming and enhances the relaxation I experienced upon completing the video. I would recommend this form of exercise to anyone and everyone - especially those with arthritis who want to keep moving!

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended March 8, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I teach a gentle yoga class for people over 50. Many of my students have chronic conditions--Parkinson's, spinal stenosis, arthritis, osteoporosis, artificial joints, etc. I recommend this video if they want something to do on days between our classes. Peggy shows exercises on different levels of difficulty so that a viewer can choose how active to be. People tell me how helpful this video is and how soothing they find Peggy's voice and manner. This is not just for people with arthritis. Anyone who wants a gentle stretching workout will benefit.

4.0 out of 5 stars It should be Yoga for ALL of Us December 14, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first saw Peggy Cappy on PBS during a membership pledge drive. She is an excellent Yoga instructor with a soothing voice that easily prods you into a level of relaxation. Most, but not all, of her instruction is well suited for elderly students with physical limitations. A few of the stretches can be too difficult for someone not flexible or limber although with time and by following a weekly routine the stretches become easier. If you are recovering from any type of injury make sure your doctor or physical therapist gives the green light to begin even the easiest warm-ups associated with Yoga. I spend a lot of time in front of a computer and find the hand warm-ups along with the neck stretches really helps lessen my discomfort. Doing just those moves could benefit anyone of any age and minimize the related pain. Overall this is a great video.

Really excellent for a non-harmful, non-hurtful workout to let you build strength. Another workout had me 3 days in bed afterward. This one had me energized!
