IMPROVE MOBILITY, JOINT HEALTH, AND BALANCE AS YOU RELIEVE PAIN, PREVENT INJURY, AND REDUCE STIFFNESS.
Join us as we take you from umm to omm with our unique, anatomy based approach to yoga!
Part workout, part physical therapy sessions, and part relaxing retreat, we’ll guide you through the basics and beyond of every pose in a fun, safe way.
Yoga Vitality is a program designed for healthy aging. It’s for those who are interested in gently and safely strengthening their body in order to prevent injury, improve functional fitness, move through day to day tasks with more comfort and ease, and to get rid of the aches and pains that hold you back from doing what you want to do.
SUITABLE FOR FOLKS OF ANY FITNESS LEVEL AND AGE!
No flexibility required!
Every class is led by 3 instructors showcasing 3 different levels of modifications for every pose. That means that every class can be completed in 3 different ways:
Level 1 – Beginners
Level 2 – Intermediates
Level 3 – Advanced
The best part is that Yoga Vitality comes with 4 complete classes that will challenge you as you grow. It is one of the most versatile and comprehensive chair yoga programs ever filmed.
WHY DO WE USE A CHAIR?
Hint: It’s not to make it easier!
Proper Technique – We use chairs to bring the ground up to your current level of flexibility and fitness. It’s not to make our workouts easier! Rather, it is to make sure you get the intended benefits out of every pose!
Safety & Support – Learn the ropes one step at a time without the risk of injury. Your chair is a backup safety net while you practice balancing and
standing strength building exercises.
Room To Grow – We show you how to do each pose with, and without a chair so you can keep using this program as you get better and better! Perfect for those who want to learn the ropes before joining a local studio!
Great program. I ran through it and can’t wait to get down to business

Tried this for a change from my Jane Adam’s yoga programs. Very pleasantly surprised. Very thorough instructions with several modifications provided. Encouraging and supportive comments and participants are male and female of varying ages. Nice way to add variety to my yoga routine.

The instructor is top notch with clear guidance including the why’s. The 4 workouts are each very good. Got to do a workout at least 3 times per week and body will benefit. My old body is better for it!

I like this video. It is helping me stretch and move more easily. It moves at a slow pace but I need that to follow the routines.
This program is just what I wanted for a senior beginner. The instructor offers modifications so that you can follow along even though you may not be physically able to do standard yoga without pain. The people in the background do the yoga with modifications, so it is easy to pick any person to follow at any given time. You are encouraged to work at your own pace and push yourself just a bit further. The four levels are increasingly more difficult, and much is done on a chair or standing instead of the floor. The instructor gives needed reminders during the program to “keep your back straight”, “keep your head up”, “good posture”, etc. He tells you where you should be feeling a stretch, which makes it easy to adjust your body to actually do the position correctly. Highly recommend this program for beginners/seniors.

I am recovering from hip replacement surgery and quite a bit of inactivity because of heart issues. I used to do quite a bit of yoga, regularly, and have fallen away. When I started in again, even with a beginner’s video, I kept re-injuring myself. Then it would take me two to three week to recover, during which I wasn’t progressing at all. When I did Yoga Vitality for the first time, I knew it could be my way back to a stronger, more grounded way of being in the world. I am still on the first lesson, building up strength and stretching some muscles but I’m already feeling stronger. And, I haven’t re-injured myself once. Recommended for persons who want to take their strength recovery seriously!

Tough workout. The instructions are clear and there are modifications for different levels. Beginner at yoga but feel this is going to make a difference in my fitness level.
I’m a 71 year old male who has never tried yoga before. However, after reading several positive stories/reports about yoga benefits, I decided to give yoga a try. Although it’s only been a little over two weeks since I started, I believe I’m already seeing healthy results. Not only do I feel physically stronger, but I also feel emotionally and mentally uplifted. If you’re a senior (like me) or have some physical challenges, this video ‘Yoga Vitality’ is perfect for you. Dean does an excellent job of coaching as you move through stretching and pose exercises. Being able to use a chair greatly helps with balance and confidence. In addition to the introductory Level 1, there are 3 additional more challenging levels to move to as your strength and confidence grows……….meaning this one video may be all you ever need. I give Dean and this video 5+ stars!

You can see different levels of fitness in this video. Outstanding instructor, easy to understand, and reminding you of many things as you go. I loved when I was feeling guilty about taking 5 breaths to his every 1, he says that’s ok you’ll get better. Yes, I think I will! I’ll be doing this yoga often I’m sure.
