This DVD has 3 complete yogapractices to meet the varying needs of people over 70. Level 1 (26 minutes) isdone all seated in a chair, and emphasizes gentle movements to improvestrength, range-of-motion, joint health, and posture, and works the body asfully as possible while sitting in a chair. Level 2 (40 minutes) alternatessitting in a chair, with standing alongside and holding onto a chair forstability. Level 2 works on developing strength and flexibility evenlythroughout the entire body, and includes many easy movements to improvebalance and increase foot, ankle and leg strength.
