Yoga for the Rest of Us with Peggy Cappy

A yoga program for anyone and everyone.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

For some of us, yoga seems like a workout that only the young, flexible, and already-in-shape can pursue. If you fall into this group, Peggy Cappy is here to tell you that you can, in fact, practice yoga and you will probably even enjoy it.

In Yoga for the Rest of Us with Peggy Cappy, Peggy claims that "you don't need to be thin, young, and a contortionist to do this program," and she's right. This video was created for people who are not very flexible, are older, or who experience aches and pains.

This workout video contains three 20-minute routines that can be done separately or together as a group to create a longer and more in-depth workout. The first workout contains warm-up seated stretches to help you become more flexible and prepare for the following workouts. The second workout is a combination of standing poses to increase your strength and stability. The third workout focuses on Sun Salutations to build your stamina.

Peggy is a great teacher and guides you through each step of the workouts. However, if what Peggy is doing is too difficult for you, some of her students also do modified versions of the yoga poses and you can follow along with these students at the level that is comfortable for you. This makes it easy to personalize the poses to get the most of the workout.

PRO
  • Three, 20-minute workouts make it easy to find a program that is the right length for you
  • Very simple and easy-to-do exercises make it easy for anyone to practice yoga
  • Receive the physical and mental benefits of yoga, no matter your age or physical abilities
  • Great way to learn basic yoga poses and stretches
CON
  • May be too simple for those who have practiced yoga before
  • Peggy talks a lot, which can be annoying to some viewers
  • Some of the students in the video seem unapproachable or distant because they do not look at the camera very often
DIET and NUTRITION

Peggy does not address diet and nutrition in this video.

EXERCISE

Most experts recommend 30-minutes of exercise, five times a week. You can use a combination of these yoga workouts to meet this recommendation.

CONCLUSION

Peggy is a wonderful teacher and makes learning yoga easy and enjoyable for everyone. This is a great workout video for true beginners and for those who might not be in prime physical shape. If you are already an advanced yoga practitioner, then this video will probably be too simple for you. However, for the rest of us, it is a great introduction to yoga and will allow you to reap both the physical and mental benefits that yoga can offer

I've been meaning to get into Yoga, but it always looked kind of hard and out there...this looks simple, basic...a good introduction to a way to feel and look better, could be just what I need.
