Movie Reviews

Focusing upon yoga sun salutations that work the entire body
Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 09/14/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As seen on public television, Yoga for the Rest of Us: Heart Healthy Yoga with Peggy Cappy is an exercise DVD focusing upon yoga sun salutations that work the entire body, and that can be performed by viewers of all skill and experience levels. Movements for the spine, lunges, side stretches, breathing techniques, leg stretches, relaxation poses, and more make for an easy-to-follow yoga workout at home perfect for viewers age nine to ninety. Host Peggy Cappy, a yoga instructor of 30 years' experience, guides the viewer through this solid workout perfect for easing stress and improving balance, joint flexibility, and endurance. Yoga for the Rest of Us: Heart Healthy Yoga with Peggy Cappy is especially recommended for anyone who is new to Yoga and wants to learn what all the positive word of mouth is about! Closed-captioned, 100 minutes."
Total Body Workout

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I give this product 5 stars! Heart Healthy Yoga provides a wonderful way to begin or end one's day. Sun Salutations contain movements that work every part of the body. Even as few as three rounds a day can produce remarkable results. I have been using Sun Salutations (Heart Healthy Yoga) on a regular basis for over a year and a half and have seen major changes in my body during that time. Without dieting I have lost at least 20 pounds, trimmed my waist, lowered my cholesterol level, strengthened my thighs and arms, improved my flexibility and gained a new body. The wonderful part about this product is that it offers the material, first in an instructive way (to learn the sequences of the movements) and then gives you a 1/2 hour class in both a modified and a classical way. I would recommend this DVD to anyone - beginners or experienced students."
Very motivational!

"If you have heart disease or want to take proactive steps to avoid it, this DVD is for you! Yoga has been proven to help lower stress levels, reduce blood pressure, lower heart rate, improve lung capacity, etc. In this DVD, Peggy Cappy guides you in a series of sun salutations specifically targeted to improve heart health. Peggy has a calming voice and her instructions are easy to follow. Her students come in all shapes and sizes so you need not be intimidated by spandex-wearing models. I suggest watching the DVD from start to finish before you begin. In one segment, Peggy's students give testamonials about how yoga has benefited them. Watching the students in class while listening to their first-hand stories is truly motivational!!!!"
Not for people with wrist issues
K. Brown | Sacramento, Ca | 12/31/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I enjoy all of Peggy Cappy's yoga programs, however, this one which is mostly sun salutations should have had a warning that someone with wrist issues will be unable to perform it. Weight bearing on the wrists is required."
