For a nation of couch potatoes, here comes the ultimate workout: seated yoga. Seated yoga is not as lazy as it may seem, however, because the cure lies or, for that matter, sits, in the cause: too much sitting creates aches and pains. But doing yoga while sitting heals them. New Age logic, to be sure, but the exercises in Seated Yoga, featuring Carol Dickman, are surprisingly effective. And relaxing. Andrea Higbie, New York Times - 7/17/01 --New York Times
I was very taken with the very relaxed, laid back style, the soothing and encouraging words. Nothing is rushed and the major emphasis is on limbering and body awareness. The video is very encouraging into all movements, each movement is followed by a moment or two of relaxation. While the movements and asanas may seem simple they have a complexity if you wish to go deeper. IYTA magazine. --IYTA Magazine

& Yoga Techniques You Can Do On A Chair
The Seated Yoga workout is 43 minutes long. It begins with a warm-up, goes on to breathing exercises, gentle yoga postures, and relaxation. This CD is very easy to follow. The instructions are clear and the pace is good. The liner notes mention that the workout is "Well-suited for seniors, the physically challenged, the blind - anyone wanting gentle exercise."
I was surprised at the full yoga stretch that I got from this seated workout. The first time I did the workout, I began in a tense mood. My breathing was shallow and my neck hurt. About ten minutes into Seated Yoga, I noticed a soothing warmth spreading in my abdomen, where I usually harbor butterflies. By the end of the workout, my muscles were warm and relaxed. My breathing was deep. My thoughts were calmer and I felt more centered.
Among the yoga postures, the movement through the torso was a pleasant surprise. The modified form of the fountain and the extremely gentle twist were a particular blessing to my jangled nerves. The relaxation sequence at the end brought my body into harmony and repose.
All in all, I'm delighted with Seated Yoga and recommend it highly.
