A REALLY GREAT AND GENTLE YOGA SESSION

"The first time I got Bed Top Yoga, I was recovering from an illness and, frankly, getting out of bed was more trouble than it was worth. Then I read in Yoga Journal about Carol Dickman's Bed Top Yoga ("This is an intelligent, useful presentation")- perfect! I used it faithfully until about a year later, when it got lost during my move to another apartment. I tried to tell myself that I could live without it - but I was wrong. I go to yoga classes but there are times when I want a yoga "hit" at home. Bed Top Yoga is perfect for this. It's the ultimate casual yoga session - everybody has a bed and all we have to do is lie (or in my case flop) on it. It would probably be good on the floor too. The stretches and techniques really work as yoga. My breath becomes deeper, my focus improves, my muscles (and my mind) relax. At first I thought I'd use Bed Top Yoga to help me sleep - and it does work well that way. But I've expanded my use of it during the day as well. I would recommend it highly. It's a gentle program and very user friendly."
Great Video for gentle stretch and relaxation

"This video is great for someone with disabilities, limitations, is elderly, or post-op. I have a back/hip problem and have difficulty with standing and sitting workouts. This video is a God send as it enables me to stretch and gently firm muscles as well as relese anxiety/stress."
Not for those who have mobility issues

"I got this because I have Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome & Lupus. I thought that doing yoga in bed would be better for me and easier on my joints. Guess again.
One - you really need a double bed. Two - you really need to have the ability to lay flat. Three - You really have full range of motion. Four - I attempted the DVD anyhow kept hitting my headboard, wall, etc.
More frustration than it was worth. I guess I thought these were exercises for those who were actually confined to bed or had limited physical strength / range of motion and were trying to get some of it back.
I passed the DVD on to a friend."
