Aired Thursday October 7th, 2010 at 7:00 pm on KUED HD Ch. 7.1
One out of three adults suffers from the pain of arthritis. Join the thousands who have discovered that yoga has profoundly helped them feel better. Peggy Cappy, PBS' favorite yoga instructor, is the catalyst. With 30 years of experience dealing with young and old alike, Cappy shows how the key to arthritis pain is exercise, and specifically yoga. Easy Yoga for Arthritis with Peggy Cappy will air on KUED Thursday, October 7 at 7:00 p.m.
"Easy Yoga for Arthritis is designed to address not only arthritis issues, but all joints which have stiffened with age or become less mobile from injury or inactivity," says producer Laurie Donnelly.
Viewers meet men and women, young and old alike, whose lives have been dramatically helped by Cappy's classes. Viewers see her classes in action and also learn how Cappy and her fellow classmates have made yoga, meditation and relaxation a vital part of their daily routine.
Cappy demonstrates movements designed to bring greater mobility and range of motion to the joints. These movements also stretch and strengthen both the muscles and connective tissue that support the joints. For those challenged by arthritis, or even just the stiffness that seems to come with age or injury, this program will prove highly effective.
Cappy says the most important advice she can give all arthritis sufferers is "to set aside time for yourself to do this easy and gentle yoga routine on a daily basis."
Cappy is certified as a yoga teacher by Siddha Yoga Dham in S. Fallsburg, New York, the White Lotus Foundation and Gurudev Siddha Peeth in Ganeshpuri, India. Cappy has also participated in many additional training classes and programs in diverse styles of yoga, including Iyengar, Ashtanga, Anusara and Bikram, as well as in stress reduction with Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center and meditation with Thich Nhat Hanh, Swami Muktananda.
