Peggy Cappy's PBS video, "Easy Yoga For Arthritis," is a fabulous anti-stress yoga sequence, presented in her gentle style that everybody can do.

Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the US, affecting some 37 million people. In this video Peggy shows how yoga can relieve stiffness, reduce pain and fatigue, and improve muscle and bone strength.

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.
