Palm Springs, CA February 14, 2008 – Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga has announced the release of their new DVD titled, "Single Chair Yoga, Volume 1©." This is the first in a series of groundbreaking DVD's designed to provide an accessible path to fitness for a wide range of populations: seniors, couch potatoes, frequent fliers, desk workers, wheelchair users, commuters-anyone who sits for prolonged periods. The new DVD can be purchased online at www.getfitwhereyousit.com.
These are easy-to-use programs that Lakshmi Voelker has developed specifically to motivate people to improve their fitness, no-matter what their challenges are! Lakshmi has tailored her routines for differing levels of flexibility (ranges of motion), making Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga appropriate for arthritis or MS patients while still being ideally suited for people who are physically fit that just need more accessible fitness routines. "I wanted to develop a style of yoga that would be easy to use by everyone, regardless of their physical condition," explains Lakshmi. "With Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga, everyone, regardless of age or ability or mobility, can benefit," said Lakshmi Voelker.
The new DVD not only teaches yoga postures, it emphasizes beneficial breathing techniques that help achieve optimum fitness and health. "Deep breathing reminds our bodies of what it feels like to deeply relax. And once we relax, we become more clear-headed and productive. These deep breathing techniques more fully oxygenate our bodies and massage our organs. They improve our energy and mental clarity while reducing pain and anxiety. Following the breathing techniques, not only during chair yoga, but also throughout our daily lives, significantly enhances our health." explains Lakshmi.
About Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga
Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga is based on 5000-year-old yoga postures called asanas as well as other Eastern movements. Lakshmi has modified these for the chair, making them accessible to everyone. In addition to adapting them for use on a chair, she has modified them to take into account that everyone has different levels of flexibility or ranges of motion, even between your upper and lower body as well as your right and left sides. This allows you to adapt them to your personal needs. For more information, please visit www.getfitwhereyousit.com.
