Senior bodies are not all the same! Physical abilities can vary widely from one person to another, and even from day to day. This DVD has 3 complete yoga practices to meet the varying needs of people over 70. Level 1 (26 minutes) is done all seated in a chair, and emphasizes gentle movements to improve strength, range-of-motion, joint health, and posture, and works the body as fully as possible while sitting in a chair. Level 2 (40 minutes) alternates sitting in a chair, with standing alongside and holding onto a chair for stability. Level 2 works on developing strength and flexibility evenly throughout the entire body, and includes many easy movements to improve balance and increase foot, ankle and leg strength. Level 3 (55 minutes) also alternates sitting in a chair with standing, but is an overall stronger and longer practice than level 2, with more time spent on the standing and balancing poses. Level 3 is broken down into 6 shorter segments for greater choice. The goal of this DVD is to help seniors live fuller, more independent lives. Special emphasis is placed on working the muscles and joints most needed in everyday life and to prevent falls. All 3 practices emphasize good posture, full deep breathing, and end with a short relaxation and meditation for a more alert and relaxed body and mind. Filmed in the beautiful Bibler Gardens. Designed and taught by Jane Adams, RYT 500, a yoga practitioner since 1976 who specializes in yoga for healthy ageing.

This Yoga CD is the perfect one for seniors who are wanting to start yoga … This Yoga CD is the perfect one for seniors who are wanting to start yoga but a little hesitant about being able to handle the poses. Jane introduces each pose in a way that is easy to follow and equally easy to do. They strength and flexibility that comes from doing this type of yoga is amazing. I started with these poses at 65 and have moved up to a little more strengthening under the gentle yoga over the past couple of years. I recommend it to everyone and have given this CD as a gift to…

A brilliant road to better health and fitness If you’re looking for a way to improve your fitness or that of a parent or grandparent, I can’t think of a better place to start. I’ve no experience with the shorter, completely seated workout on this DVD. Last year, I purchased the first edition which has one work out very similar to the middle one here on the second edition. The third workout is more difficult–we plan to work our way through this eventually, but for my 85 year old mother it was a little too much so we went back to the…

Love this like I do all of Jane’s practices Perfect Yoga for me. I am 70 and have been doing Jane’s workouts for 4 years and never tire of them. She is very thorough in addressing every part of your body for a well rounded practice. The setting of this new DVD is beautiful and the soft background music really completes this enjoyable practice. I like doing a different workout every day and when I add this to my older DVD by Jane I have a nice variety. Watch for the funny cat that appears near the end of the first practice-I think he…
