Success Story

I recently received your tape, Sitting Fit Anytime, and am really enjoying it. I have Multiple Sclerosis, asthma, and am a senior citizen. (Nobody ever promised me a rose garden.) I was turned on to yoga by a group run by the New York Multiple Sclerosis Society for its members and it features seated yoga... When some of the exercises are too difficult for me I do whatever I can and I find that I am improving slowly... I spoke to the head nurse at the MS Center where I am treated and she thinks that some of the patients may profit from your program and I will pass it on.
