Reviews of Yoga over 50 – with 8 Routines
Review 1: 8 different routines to choose from
So you don’t get bored doing the same routine over and over. They range in time from 35Min. to 55 min. I have not tried the meditation or the osteoporosis routine yet. I especially like the chair routine and the arthritis routine. Some are a little advanced for me. I am 741/2 years young, so I will probably stick to those two routines the most. Her routines are very slow and relaxed, but don’t let that fool you, you will get a good workout!
If you are used to doing a more robust yoga, you may have to slow your mind down and if you are a beginner, you will need to be patient with yourself and do the easier versions of the poses. the only criticism is that she does not do head rolls or a lot of upper torso stretches or breathing tecniques, but I can do them on my own.
The music is much better than most yoga music for me and also the scenery is quite beautiful!
Review 2: Very Helpful
Well designed video with a nice variety of exercises. There are standing exercises if you feel like it, sitting exercises and exercises lying down. They are about 25-40 minutes in length, which I find to be a good amount of time.
The teacher is very good in telling you how to do the yoga. I have found this to be very helpful. I now do the General one 2-3 times a week and select another one, so I am doing yoga 3-4 times a week. Has made me feel better.
Review 3: Decent program
Pretty good video. It can be as challenging or simple as you make it, by modifying what you need to for your own level. I feel like the movements are good for beginning and advanced yoga or basic fitness minded people (I am 53, having some knee issues and am overweight).
Glad I found it and listened to the reviews. One thing that is inconsequential to the quality of the exercise, but just annoys me, is the “interview” part.
It seems Barbara is reading a prompter, and completely uninterested or aware of the words she’s saying… or perhaps it was just edited and that was the unfortunate result. But no matter, luckily one doesn’t have to see/her that more than once. Whew. I plan on enjoying this work out for years to come, though.
