Yoga Vitality is a program that we created for healthy aging.

While we can’t reverse aging . . . yet . . . we can still help you get back your mobility so that you can pursue your favorite activities without the stiffness and pain that usually follows you for days . . . push yourself without the fear of injury . . . wake up feeling limber and refreshed . . . enjoy spending time with loved ones without the nagging back pain . . . and so that you can feel younger.

We’ve already helped thousands of men and women.

Now it’s your turn.

It’s time to get your freedom back.

Here’s how Yoga Vitality works

Yoga Vitality comes with 4 workouts in ascending difficulty.

Workout 1. Yoga Core
Workout 2. Yoga Move
Workout 3. Yoga Balance
Workout 4. Yoga Firm

Each workout contains 3 different levels of difficulty for each exercise.

Level 1. Beginner modifications
Level 2. Intermediate modifications
Level 3. Advance modifications

For best results, we recommend using this program three times per week for one month.

That’s a total of just 12 times.

Will you join me?

At a minimum, try to do each workout once per week.

When doing each workout, try to follow along to me as best as you can. If you need an easier variation, look over to John, whom you will see on your left-hand side. He will be showing the level 1 modifications for beginners. If you are ready to challenge yourself with a more advanced modification, look over to Veronica, whom you will see on your right! She will be showing the level 3, advanced modifications.

We recommend doing each workout at least 3 times before moving on to the next routine. You should be comfortable doing the advanced modifications before moving on.

Depending on your fitness level, most folks should get started with either Workout 1 or Workout 2.

Workout 1. Yoga Core.
This is our introductory workout. All poses are done seated on a chair. We introduce breathing, muscle activation, gentle core strengthening exercises, seated dynamic movements for shoulder mobility, and gentle hip openers to reduce lower back pain.

Workout 2. Yoga Move.
The second workout continues to build on core strength, continues with dynamic movements for joint health and shoulder mobility, expands on poses that help alleviate back pain, and introduces standing exercises to work on balance – though we give you the option to remain seated for all exercises.

Workout 3
This workout introduces traditional yoga poses with safe and gentle modifications. In this routine you will start to build strength and flexibility through standing exercises while working on balance and core strength. All exercises are done with the assistance of a chair. The chair is there for you to raise the ground a little higher and to offer you support as we explore new balancing poses.

Workout 4
Our final workout will prepare you to take yoga classes in your local studio, gym, or health center by showing you how you can continue to modify poses with a yoga block instead of a chair. This class starts to resemble a more traditional yoga class but still provides you with the safe and gentle modifications it you need for your level.

⚠️ WARNING!⚠️

We want to keep you safe!

Please consult your physician, assess your fitness level, and follow all safety instructions before beginning any exercise program, nutrition plan, and/or using any equipment.

Body By Yoga provides a variety of exercise programs, some of which are physically demanding and high-intensity in nature. For this reason, you must listen to your body, use common sense, take breaks, and hydrate as needed to avoid injury. If at any time you feel any discomfort, pain, dizziness, light-headedness, shortness of breath, or nausea, stop exercising immediately and consult your physician. Incorrect or excessive training can result in serious injury or death.

When doing any outdoor workouts or activities, be aware of your surroundings and avoid anything that could hurt you or disrupt your exercise, especially when walking or running in public areas such as sidewalks and streets.

If you have any unique or special medical conditions, such as if you’re pregnant, have diabetes or asthma, or if you have a history of knee, ankle, hip, shoulder or spinal (back or neck) problems, you must consult your physician to understand all potential risks and complications of using our exercise programs, nutrition plans, and/or equipment, and receive approval from them to proceed before beginning. Failure to do so could result in significant injury to you and others (including, if applicable, your unborn child). By engaging in any exercise program, nutrition plan, and/or using any equipment, you assume all dangers, hazards and risks of injury or death.

SAFE USE OF EQUIPMENT

FITNESS EQUIPMENT PRESENTS HAZARDS WHICH, IF NOT AVOIDED, COULD CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH

Certain programs may utilize equipment, such as yoga mats, yoga blocks, yoga straps, chairs, foam rollers, and other equipment which, if not used correctly, could lead to serious injury or death. Carefully review all safety, care and use instructions and manuals prior to beginning.

For your safety, you must:

Use any equipment shown in the workouts only as demonstrated, using proper form.
Inspect any equipment for wear or damage prior to each use and refrain from using any equipment that appears damaged, worn or defective.
Keep children, pets and any other obstacles away from equipment and exercise area at all times.
Always use a secure, proper, and stable anchor for any equipment that requires hanging or attaching.
Always exercise caution during use of any equipment to make sure you do not lose your grip or control, such as making sure your hands are not wet or sweaty.
Ensure exercise bands are firmly secure and assembled to prevent slipping, snapping, recoiling and injury to yourself or anyone else.
Ensure your workout bench and pull up bar is stable, strong enough to hold your weight and does not move during use. If you do not think you can safely perform exercises with your bench or pull up bar, or you do not have the proper equipment, you should do the modifier exercises instead.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, Body By Yoga and its parent, affiliate, and subsidiary companies will not be liable to any person or entity for any injury, death, damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused directly or indirectly by any exercise programs, workouts, nutritional supplements or plans, equipment (including without limitation the Body By Yoga mat and Body By Yoga blocks), advice or any other products, services or materials.
