Really good for people with arthritis
Review by Jan on 03/25/22 review stating Really good for people with arthritis
Good instructions. I only wish that there was a section with less instruction that you could do after you learned the movements.

Yoga stretch
Review by T00ts on 03/28/21 review stating Yoga stretch
Directions are good but it isnt much of a workkout. It would only be good for someone who has difficulty with movement.

Title an Accurate Description
Review by Hana on 03/28/21 review stating Title an Accurate Description
Excellent beginning for those with arthritis or other joint problems. Students not expected to leap, but rather ease into yoga. Instructions clear and concise. Good to see exercises done from a chair if the student is not yet ready to do them standing or from the floor. I recommend this for those wanting to try yoga, see how it might work for them. I will continue to use the DVD weekly.

Yoga for the Rest of Us
Review by Lm on 03/28/21 review stating Yoga for the Rest of Us
This was one of the most interesting programs I have seen in some time. Being a former R. N. and having so much arthritis with no relief from braces or over the counter medications, I found this DVD easy to understand and exercises anyone could do!

This was an excellent dvd
Review by Jc R. on 03/28/21 review stating This was an excellent dvd
I have done numeous yoga dvds and I feel this one was far the best. There were three versions in varying degrees of difficulty. As a previous long distant runner I have arthritic challenges and could follow different versions as I needed. The instructions were clear and concise. The dvd was very enjoyable and the time flew by.

great for my situation
Review by Heather on 12/22/20 review stating great for my situation
I had been looking for chair yoga classes and/or a DVD or you tube video that I could follow with severe arthritis in my hips, without finding much that I could do. This, though, fits the bill. There are some things I cant do, but enough that I can do that it is really a good choice. Peggy is a good teacher and the exercises shes chosen are easy on the body but effective and enjoyable. One thing that could be better is if there were suggestions as to what to do if you cant do the pose at all - to work up to being able to do it. Overall, though, I recommend this DVD.

easy exercise
Review by Bip on 12/22/20 review stating easy exercise
Its a great video overall. As it starts, it doesnt seem quite perfectly organized or practiced, but it gets better as it continues. Even the first part isnt bad - just not perfect. The exercises are well chosen for those of us beginning to feel our age. It is low impact and a lovely bit of stretching and bending for all levels of fitness.

Great for us less flexible people
Review by Lo on 12/22/20 review stating Great for us less flexible people
Easy to follow, shows three different variations of the pose at the same time so we can vary the workout depending on our flexibility/limitations. I can already feel a difference in my flexibility in just a month! I plan to get the Back Basics Yoga DVD using the discount offered for writing this review.

Good, but slow
Review by Tracy K. on 12/22/20 review stating Good, but slow
Did seem to help with my arthritic pain. Was a bit slow for me, but would be good for people who need a slower paced workout, or just need to be forced to slow down to de-stress

This program is just the thing Ive been looking for. It answers so many questions, fills so many holes, and just feels so right. It is also something that I can do and I actually look forward to participating. It came at just the right time!

Have had to admit to having arthritis following total knee replacement in December 2011 and being treated for lower back and shoulder inpingements. With physical therapist and doctor approval started working with this DVD. Could feel unused muscles reawakening. Looking forward to being more flexible and chasing away the dreaded morning stiffness through this assuring, pleasant and do-able program. Thank you.
