"You don't need to be thin, young, and a contortionist to do this program," says instructor Peggy Cappy. Yoga for the Rest of Us is a yoga practice for people who might be inflexible, out of shape, or feeling aches and pains. Cappy presents three 20-minute routines that work separately or together. Part 1 is a series of warm-up seated stretches. Part 2 presents standing poses, holding a chair if needed. Part 3 is a flowing series of Sun Salutations, building stamina, and again using a chair if necessary, followed by relaxation. Public television yoga instructor Cappy teaches gently and quietly, accompanied by demonstrators of various ages and conditions. Recommended for people who thought that yoga was beyond them because of age, medical conditions, or fitness level, especially those with functional challenges, such as not being able to bend down or reach for a top shelf. --Joan Price

Two final features make this dvd one that works well for me. First, it is divided into three 20 minute sections which can be performed separately or in one hour-long session. This makes it easy for me to do one part or the whole sequence depending on my schedule. Finally, and most importantly, Peggy Cappy stresses lots of wonderful stretches that I have not found in any other yoga dvd. She pays attention especially to arms, wrists, hands, fingers and legs, feet, ankles. In an older person, these extremities can become very stiff and lose pliability. Peggy Cappy's attention to stretching these parts of the body has helped me to regain flexibility and to feel really good. I highly recommend this dvd.
Yoga for the Rest of Us is great for those us us who have physical limitations and want easy, gentle yoga. It is good for beginners, too. It helps with my fibromyalgia pain, too.
I enjoy Peggy Cappy as a yoga instructor. She has a wonderful delivery about her and I can see why her students rave about her in the last segment where they talk about what yoga has done for them.
I recommend Peggy's Yoga for the Rest of Us Dvd's: Back Care Basics, Easing Pain and Arthritis as they are great for those of us who suffer from back pain, arthritis, and fibro pain
I have a sister who is almost wheel-chair bound but will not exercise. I gave her this DVD to take home. She loved that first 20 minutes, because it both helped her limbs AND motivated her to exercise with a specialist!
