Easy Yoga For Easing Pain

Thank You Gifts

Based from her home in Peterborough, New Hampshire, Easy Yoga for Easing Pain will feature Peggy both explaining and demonstrating why yoga can effectively alleviate the pain in painful joints. And to further reinforce the value of incorporating yoga as part of daily living, we will track five or six individuals whom Peggy has been working with to see first hand how her program has affected the quality of their lives. As part of the program, viewers will also be a fly on the wall in one of Peggy's jam-packed yoga classes. These classes include men and women from all walks of life and all ages -- teens to octogenarians. Peggy will also address larger lifestyle considerations for those dealing with pain. According to Peggy, "Yoga is only part of the healing process. Our sedentary lifestyles and poor eating habits are also fanning the flames of joint pain, and research shows that these factors can greatly exacerbate the pain in problem joints." As an instructor who walks the walk, Peggy will discuss how some of the simplest changes can make a positive and lasting impact on your daily life, and she is living proof. She will also demonstrate some of the easy changes that can be incorporated into a daily routine.
