The Stronger Seniors Yoga Chair Exercise program is designed to help seniors develop strength and enhance the ability to function in daily life. This beginning yoga program improves respiration and circulation and reduces tension. Stronger Seniors Yoga Chair Exercise will help to increase balance, flexibility, and strength. Yoga incorporates simple mind/body exercises focusing on breath and relaxation which help to reduce stress. If you have heard how wonderful Yoga is, but always thought it was too difficult, now is your time to experience this amazing age-old practice. Modified for the chair, Stronger Seniors Yoga Chair Exercise Program incorporates all of the benefits of yoga: a healthier, stronger and more relaxed you; improved flexibility; a great sense of calm and well-being; and increased oxygen intake. No getting down on the floor, no 'pretzel' poses. Just increased flexibility, mobility, and relaxation. There is no risk of injury from hyperextension that most 'beginning' yoga programs can cause. Chair Yoga participants receive not only the physical benefits of Yoga (Postures), but also the more quiet and meditative aspects of breath awareness and the relaxation response.
This is true healing yoga on a simplified scale. I don't understand how something that looks so easy can have any affect on your well-being, but it definitely does. Soothing music and a beginning relaxation session get your body and mind ready for the exercises. Easy gentle moves all while seated in a chair with emphasis on deep breathing gets oxygen to all the muscles that are being stretched and creates the miracle :o) And the time flies by - total of 40 minutes including the ending relaxation, but it seems more like only 5 minutes have passed so don't be afraid it will take too long and that you will get bored. It's the best 40 minutes I could ever spend. I haven't gone past the basic session yet but hope to soon start making use of Anne's other DVD set for seniors, called Stretch & Strength, on alternate days. I had so much improvement in the first couple of weeks I have since bought 8 DVDs as gifts for family and friends that I thought might get some benefit from it. Before receiving this DVD, I thought the rest of my life would be spent on the sofa. Thank you Anne for saving my life! Namaste! --Alma W., Clinton, AR
Dear Anne, I cannot begin to tell you of how much I love your Yoga for Seniors DVD. Yoga has been a passion of mine for several years and at 53 years old, this past spring I became a certified instructor and have been instructing the more mature adult ( no one under 65 ) at a retirement facility. I purchased your DVD and have been using many of the wonderful poses you do for these women of whom I instruct. They Love It!!!! They prefer a slow gradual seated pose as opposed to someone who runs them through a series. These women are in wheelchairs and on walkers with other issues as well, however, they have determination to improve their health and flexibility, as best as they can. I am so grateful for your DVD and am so willing to learn more and new things so that I can offer these women more gifts. Please add me to your mailing list and if you ever hold any kind of weekend yoga conference for the mature adult, I am only 4 hours away! Thank you! God Bless! Namaste! --Mallory Patton, Wisconsin
I am 70 yrs old, Never have done Yoga, Began this 4 weeks ago. I feel better after doing it, and am seeing improvement in the level of pain when bending over, from Arthritis. I can tell the difference in how I feel if I don't do it, am using the program almost every day now. Thank you, everyone connected with this program!!!!! My friend is a yoga teacher, bought this first, I used hers until mine came. --Maxine J.

If you purchase this, start by just doing this for one half of the time for the first 4 - 6 days, then gradually get into doing the whole program. This way it will be easier to use and follow and you will work your way up to the whole program.
What I have found is that this is similar to a type of Yoga Theraphy Class that I take a gym. It is a great therapy for me to use for my shoulder and back and now, I am almost pain free and have my full motion back in my shoulder, right arm and back areas.
One more thing: I have had this program for over one year. Just got around to doing a review for it. Noticed that this is kind of hard to find. But it can be found online in some online stores.
