Join yoga teacher Peggy Cappy as she demonstrates movements to use at home to strengthen muscles and help increase mobility for people who are challenged by arthritis or the stiffness that comes with age or injury.
This new special is divided into seven easy-to-use segments that will leave you energized and feeling more flexible:
- Gentle Warm-ups to loosen shoulders, neck and back, legs and feet
- Warm-ups for the hands, wrists, and arms
- Standing poses
- Seated poses
- Reclining poses
- Deep relaxation techniques
This gentle yoga routine is perfect for people of all ages and abilities as Peggy's unique approach allows for three modifications for each pose: standing, seated or using a chair for support. Plus, Peggy incorporates meditation into this workout, a technique proven to increase our ability to deal with stress.
Bonus! Travel to Peggy's historic hometown of Peterborough, NH, to meet the men and women whose lives have been dramatically improved by Peggy's classes. Hear first-hand accounts of how yoga has helped her students ease their arthritis and increase their overall health and well-being.
For more than thirty years Peggy Cappy has been teaching yoga to students of all ages. Peggy's other yoga programs include Back Care Basics and Heart Healthy Yoga. (SDH.)

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
