Certified instructor description:
A mostly seated series of stretch, toning, circulation and flexibility exercises. It’s led by PBS’s Mary Ann Wilson, a kind and very gentle instructor. Each segment is just 2 to 4 minutes long so it’s easy to do small portions at time. The first program begins with seated circulation exercises followed by stretches and standing leg exercises (you also get a seated variation). It ends with total-body guided-relaxation featuring tranquil outdoor scenery. The second program uses two balls for flexibility and joint exercises (e.g. rolling the ball beneath your feet as you’re seated). Requires two balls, about 2-inch and 6-inch in diameter. ©2008.
