My New Adaptive Yoga DVD and Book

If you are wondering why my blog posts have been sparse and very irregular, this is what I have been up to……..writing, designing and filming this adaptive yoga DVD and book.  This has been my husbands and I’s baby for several years now.  I never dreamed it would be so much work.  Work because we did it all.  I wrote the book and did all the illustrations.  My husband did the filming and film editing.  I designed the DVD cover and am now learning about marketing. What we didn’t know how to do, we studied and learned.

This has been in the works now for many, many years.  I love teaching yoga, especially to those who have never tried it before and to those with physical challenges of some kind. I am so passionate about yoga because I have experienced the many benefits over the years myself AND have seen how it has helped so many other people both EMOTIONALLY and PHYSICALLY.

I have taught chair yoga at the local senior center for over 10 yeas now and have seen some amazing things happen with individuals improving mobility and quality of life.

My oldest student is 94 years old and is still going strong.  She and several others tell you a little bit about their experience in the testimonial section of the DVD.

I have gone to all this work, NOT because I enjoy seeing myself on video.  (In fact, this was VERY challenging for me and really outside my comfort zone).  I did it because I want others to benefit from yoga and I want to let people know that they can still move their bodies and exercise despite challenges.

  • age
  • weight
  • MS and other chronic illness
  • arthiritis
  • surgery

We can sit in our chairs or stay in our beds and complain about our limitations, and have a pity party about the condition of our bodies, or we can get up and do something about it.  No one else can or will do
it for you.

On those days when I want to stay in bed because I am achy or feel depressed, I know if I will just get up a move my body a little, I will always feel better, and I do!

Once you try this stuff, your body & soul will CRAVE it!  It’s medicine to the soul and your body.

My hope for this book and DVD is to help empower others with a few tools so that they can help themselves feel better physically and emotionally. Yoga will do it.

For many years on my drive home from teaching my senior yoga class I would think to myself, “these people need to be doing this more than once a week”, and would often get requests for a video so they could do it at home.  I have made handouts and have even made a few audios over the years to give some kind of home direction, but nothing as comprehensive as this book and DVD.  So I am very excited to have this available.

The book is designed to hang over a chair so you can look at it while doing your practice.

    I’ve just ordered this direct from your site – looked at your YouTube and liked the way you so clearly explain the how and why. It looks excellent.

    I’m trusting its Region 2 for UK? Couldn’t find confirmation on this?

    Have enjoyed looking at your site today – lots to inspire and do! Many thanks!ReplyCancel
