Sunshine does mention to breath quite often in the video, which I caught myself needing from time to time. I also noticed the elderly group responding to her reminders to breath.
I had no problems with the sound quality of the video, and did not see any participants having any problem with the sound or video quality.
This is a simple video, with Sunshine sitting in a chair by the beach. The view doesnt change, nor does her smile. In my opinion, this is a good video to have as part of a collection. Another good exercise video I would recommend, is- Rise Up With Rosie: Joyfulness in Motion. This video is more fun than Sunshine, but may be harder to find.
All in all, this video offers good range of motion and strength improvement, with easy to follow exercises. She stays sitting the entire time, for those who want a true "exercise while you sit" video.
Like another reviewer,I purchased this video for a parent. I did the video first to make sure it would be safe for her. Based on the cover,I was afraid that Sunshine might be a hyperperky, high-pitched cheerleader. She is not. Although she does perform every exercise without losing the smile that you see on the cover, she passively narrates the video and I find her voice quite soothing. There are visual cues to remind you to Breathe and a little sun displays when you are on the last exercise of a set (OK, admittedly a little hokey but I think it's useful for elderly or hearing impaired).
She does not offer modifications of any of the exercises (so the exerciser needs to be able to do this themselves), but she chooses simple, relatively easy exercises, so I think it was a good decision. For the purpose of this video I think offering modifications might make it choppy and potentially confusing for the target audience (older and/or rehab patients).
Slight criticism is that when she does the torso twists, I wish she would pause in the center (right, center, left, center) instead of going directly right and left but that is a modification I will discuss with my Mom.
The exercises are very simple yet effective. The routine is not very long. The teacher clearly shows and explains the exercises and does them at a nice slow pace and my parents follow along easily. There is a nice soothing relaxation at the end of routine which has positive affirmations and is very good.
Recommended to anyone who wants an easy sitting exercises routine that works.
