Fighting Arthritis with the Power of Yoga

Release Date: 09/13/2010

Easy Yoga for Arthritis with Peggy Cappy airs Thursday, September 16 at 8 p.m. on CPTV

 

Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States, affecting one in seven Americans. Instructor Peggy Cappy returns in her fifth public television special to demonstrate what many studies affirm: that yoga can be an incredibly effective way to relieve stiffness, reduce pain and fatigue, and improve muscle and bone strength. Easy Yoga for Arthritis with Peggy Cappy airs Thursday, September 16 at 8 p.m. on CPTV.

 

For more than thirty years, Peggy Cappy has been teaching yoga, meditation, and guided relaxation, helping others create greater comfort and ease in body, mind and spirit. Her studies have taken her to India, the source of yoga, to study with yoga and meditation masters. Peggy’s desire to create the Peggy Cappy PBS Yoga for the Rest of Us video series came from her interaction with a special group of elders that she has been teaching for a long time. The average age of the group is over 80 and her oldest student is more than 100. Peggy’s unique approach to yoga has adults finding they have energy and flexibility they never dreamed possible at their age.
