The Stronger Seniors Yoga Chair Exercise program is designed to help seniors develop strength and enhance the ability to function in daily life.

This beginning yoga program improves respiration and circulation and reduces tension. Stronger Seniors Yoga Chair Exercise will help to increase balance, flexibility, and strength.

Yoga incorporates simple mind/body exercises focusing on breath and relaxation which help to reduce stress. If you have heard how wonderful yoga is, but always thought it was too difficult, now is your time to experience this amazing age-old practice.

Modified for the chair, Stronger Seniors Yoga Chair Exercise Program incorporates all of the benefits of yoga: a healthier, stronger and more relaxed you; improved flexibility; a great sense of calm and well-being; and increased oxygen intake. No getting down on the floor, no 'pretzel' poses. Just increased flexibility, mobility, and relaxation.

There is no risk of injury from hyperextension that most 'beginning' yoga programs can cause. Chair Yoga participants receive not only the physical benefits of yoga (postures), but also the more quiet and meditative aspects of breath awareness and the relaxation response.

Stronger Senior: Core Fitness Chair Exercise DVD

The Stronger Seniors Core Fitness Chair Exercise Program is designed to help seniors and the mobility-challenged develop strength and flexibility, enhancing the ability to function in daily life.

Core Fitness is specially designed to strengthen your abdominals, lower back and pelvic floor muscles: those which support your spine and internal organs – the foundation of your body. Exercising the core is essential to good posture and balance. If you ignore these muscle groups, the risk of kyphosis, osteoporosis, and other chronic disease is increased.

By building a strong core foundation, your overall physical health and appearance is improved and will help you enjoy all of the physical activities that you look forward to: walking, biking, gardening, and the like. You will feel a tremendous difference in how you feel and how you see yourself.

Stronger Seniors Core Fitness Chair Exercise Program is based on the teachings of Joseph Pilates. Pilates incorporates exercises that train your body from the inside out. No other exercise program is as gentle to your body while providing a challenging workout. Modified for the chair by Stott™ Pilates Instructor Trainer Anne Pringle Burnell, this DVD is so safe that it is used in physical therapy facilities to rehabilitate injuries. If you are looking to better your overall health, Stronger Seniors Core Fitness Chair Exercise Program is an effective, well-paced exercise DVD.
