If you always wanted to do Yoga Poses (Yoga is ancient Indian Science of Health and Well being but can’t do them, because of any of these reasons: 1) You are old 2) You are young, but are out of shape — then one of the oldest pro practitioners of Yoga, Jane Fonda is out to help you.
Her new DVD, Prime Time AM/PM Yoga for Beginners, is targeting people like herself, and much younger people, who sadly are not at the best of shapes.
Jane Fonda is a Yoga and fitness veteran. She will turn 75 on Dec. 21. She has produced more than 20 fitness videos.
Interestingly, She started out doing hard-core aerobic workouts in the early 1980s. But later, released that Yoga is the Science of Health and Well Being In the latest DVD, she has discreetly made the Yoga poses easy (while maintaining their effectiveness) and doable for the target group.
There are five segments, the first three devoted to morning: abdominal and back muscles, light stretches and basic yoga poses, and strength training with light hand weights. For night, there are two sections: mobility and relaxation. None is longer than 20 minutes. Several of the exercises — planks, for instance — use a chair or other prop, making them easier to complete.
Fonda herself has osteoarthritis; and says that even those suffering with the disease can do the Yoga poses included in the Book. That apart, the Yoga poses in the DVD are blended with some Pilates. This is to make muscles stronger, preserve joints and give a more leaner body.
