Heart Healthy Yoga
Program Description

It has been five years since Peggy Cappy introduced the public to the notion that there is a gentle way of doing yoga that doesn't demand bending your body like a pretzel. Now she is back with Heart-Healthy Yoga, a new WGBH-produced program aimed at addressing what's on the mind of many Americans: heart health. The veteran yoga teacher developed and perfected her adaptable regimen through years of testing and research in classes held in her hometown of Peterborough, N.H.

Peggy Cappy's Heart Healthy Yoga will include interviews with Peggy, discussing the important relationship between yoga and heart health; show Peggy demonstrating and working with her classes, using the key yoga poses that are tied to heart health, including sun salutations as a mainstay of the practice; and incorporate testimonials with her students that have been working with her on creating this new concept. This new program will bear the same trademark techniques that present yoga in a way that is doable for poeple of all ages, shapes and sizes.

Pledge special broadcast in High Definition.
