4.0 out of 5 stars Total Body Workout September 24, 2009
I give this product 5 stars! Heart Healthy Yoga provides a wonderful way to begin or end one's day. Sun Salutations contain movements that work every part of the body. Even as few as three rounds a day can produce remarkable results. I have been using Sun Salutations (Heart Healthy Yoga) on a regular basis for over a year and a half and have seen major changes in my body during that time. Without dieting I have lost at least 20 pounds, trimmed my waist, lowered my cholesterol level, strengthened my thighs and arms, improved my flexibility and gained a new body. The wonderful part about this product is that it offers the material, first in an instructive way (to learn the sequences of the movements) and then gives you a 1/2 hour class in both a modified and a classical way. I would recommend this DVD to anyone - beginners or experienced students.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for people with wrist issues December 31, 2009
Verified Purchase
I enjoy all of Peggy Cappy's yoga programs, however, this one which is mostly sun salutations should have had a warning that someone with wrist issues will be unable to perform it. Weight bearing on the wrists is required.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yoga can be cardio fitness February 13, 2010
When people tell me that yoga is only good for stretching, but doesn't improve cardio fitness, I recommend this video. Done slowly, the Sun Salutations are great for endurance, flexibility, and strength. Done more quickly, you add the benefit of cardio exercise.

I love this video because Peggy breaks down the Saluations into an easy to learn flow.

The chair version of Sun Saluation on this video also makes the Sun Saluation accessible to people who cannot work comfortably on the floor. This is also a great start for people who need to improve their flexibility, but need to start with a variation that is doable and then work their way into more advanced version. (And as trainers know, being successful is motivating.)

First thing in the morning I start with the chair version and then move on to the floor version as I limber up a bit.

During my last physical, my doctor noted that I had lost 11 lbs. in the last year. I told her it was my morning Sun Saluations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very motivational! September 25, 2009
If you have heart disease or want to take proactive steps to avoid it, this DVD is for you! Yoga has been proven to help lower stress levels, reduce blood pressure, lower heart rate, improve lung capacity, etc. In this DVD, Peggy Cappy guides you in a series of sun salutations specifically targeted to improve heart health. Peggy has a calming voice and her instructions are easy to follow. Her students come in all shapes and sizes so you need not be intimidated by spandex-wearing models. I suggest watching the DVD from start to finish before you begin. In one segment, Peggy's students give testamonials about how yoga has benefited them. Watching the students in class while listening to their first-hand stories is truly motivational!!!!

I'm more likely to work out, if I don't have to set-up a place on the floor, get the mat, etc. If you don't use a mat, you need to be careful, or your feet can slip. Saw this on the PBS show, and I'm glad I did. I do the exercises holding on to the computer desk. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars get this! June 26, 2010
Verified Purchase
I am resuming yoga practice after many years. I found Peggy Cappy's dvds and book, and I ordered this dvd as well. I have (at 58) issues with stiff places, sore places and cannot do some poses without modifications. I wanted to learn Sun Salutation, but I am not able to get up and down from the floor to do this the usual way..Peggy's dvd will enable me to learn Sun Salute and still gain the benefits of the pose..she is a caring and patient teacher.

Originally my neighbor recommended this video as she had borrowed it from the library. I ended up ordering one for myself and the neighbor as I found it to be an extremely enlightening dvd. Peggy, goes through and explains all moves. There is NO music to distract you in doing the various moves. Highly recommended.
