A message from FOF Founder, Geri Brin:

One thing I know for sure: If I’m lucky enough to live to my eighties, I do not want to shuffle like my mother did.

Many older people shuffle because they’re unsure of their balance and worried they’ll fall. And they’re absolutely right. If we don’t work our muscles, they are going to atrophy and we will fall.

Beauty products, plastic surgery, great-looking clothes and jewelry may be a girl’s best friends. But balance, strength and flexibility—physical and mental—are what really keep us young.

We have the solution: Yoga for Faboverfifty Women, a new video we’ve created for the FOF Shop. It will calm your mind and strengthen your body.

Namaste!

xox,
FOF Founder, Geri Brin

    I feel that Iyengar yoga would help me bc since I am a yoga teacher I could incorporate this into my yoga classes and then it would help my students as well. It would help my older students with their arthritis and balance which would help them prevent injuries as well from falling.

    My favorite yoga teacher is an Iyengar teacher (she is 65 and beautiful!) and to supplement my home practice, I would enjoy a set of videos for FOF women. I love my yoga practice.

    I have fibromyalgia, and gentle exercise is critical for me. In addition, my son’s wedding is coming up and I would love to be toned and looking my best!

    I have never done yoga before, and I am embarrassed to say that I am reluctant to go to a class before I learn some basic moves. I am very un-flexible, and believe that yoga would help me with my constant body aches and flexibility. This would be the perfect addition to my workout routine (I started running about 6 months ago) but need to add muscle work. THank you!

    I am now 61 and have always been a clutz!!! But now as I age, I am having more problems with my balance and peace of mind. I have wanted to take Yoga for a long time, but have not found a location close to my home that works with my work schedule. I have tried videos and books but with the born-in lack of grace, I have a hard time. Plus, I would like a form of Yoga suited to my age. I believe that Yoga would help with my balance; increase my strength and allow me to achieve relaxation and inner peace.

    I so need this! I just turned 53 and have been disabled since 1996 due to neck and head injuries. I have been unable to drive so being able to practice Yoga in my home would be ideal for me. I have wanted to try Yoga for a long time to help strengthen my body and hopefully reduce my daily pain and medications. The instruction on the tape seems to be easier to follow so I can do the moves correctly by myself. Thank you so much FOF for offering this.

    I liked the series. I started yoga for the first time just before the winter holidays and am trying to get back to it. I like it because it forces me to relax. I feel so rested after a yoga session. I hope to practice more often this year. I became interested after meeting a nurse who told me her sister has practiced yoga for years and it seems to help her osteoporosis. I fell and broke my wrist in June and my foot in Aug so I am concerned about falls. I would like to learn more about yoga for someone of my age.

    I really think Yoga is what I need. I have a pretty stressful job as a Middle School Nurse with about 1200 students. I am pretty active, work out and lift weights but I need a change.

    I have taken yoga in the past. My knees are really bad, I think Iyengar yoga, with it’s accomodation for not so flexible people, with allow me to use yoga to strengthen my body, but respect my limitations.

    Iyengar Yoga would help me with my hip pain. It helps when I keep my hips flexible and stretched out. It would also help with osteopenia that I was recently diagnosed with.

    I have wanted to try Yoga again for about 30 years. I tried it in my teens but had an instructor that wasn’t very patient. I need to gain the balance, muscle strength & stretching that it would provide. I do feel compressed by the end of the work day.

    lyengar yoga would help my body and mind and spirit!just the breathig and posture guidlines in this yoga are amazing. just researched it a little and would love to give it a whirl! it could help me on so many levels, stress, balance, the understanding of my body!! i think i would benefit greatly from having this available to me! with my lupus and fibromyalgia i just don’t see it NOT helping me. i could get into a regular routine! especially with them being on DVD form. so easy to access and replay if you didn’t catch it first time through! i could see this helping with the depression also. and the stress levels would automaticly go down. well mind, well body, well spirit! namaste!

    I’m certain it would help relieve my “self-induced” stress as I am a high strung, Type A personality. I also want to work with balance and flexibility before I have issues with these things! Thank you for this great giveaway and for sharing so many great things with us! XOXO

    I have been doing Pilates for 12 years or so and recently added Yoga another day of the week. Because it is hard to find the time to go to studios (I work…I think) having something that can help me practice another day of the week would be invaluable. It really is that ability to do at home that I need to fit into my routines. I have learned that the more often i can do, the better I feel…and having issues with bone density, etc…I know I need to do.

    I’m in dire need of inspiration to help motivate me to practice some form of exercise. I have a sciatica and back muscle problem that I believe Iyengar Yoga can help.

    I have seriously been considering Yoga and was happy to see that you endorse it. From what I am reading, it would be good for my mental health as well as physical and at 61, using my muscles and getting a better balance for my body is necessary.

  19. Phyllis Neubauer says:

    As I have aged my muscle and skin tone has aged with me and I think that the yoga would improve my muscle and skin tone and also improve my flexability. I have also heard that yoga has a calming effect, which would improve my concentration.
    This would be a great way for me to get back into shape.

    My yoga instructor and class is excellent. Another FOF and I always joke that we may not be the best in the class or getting any better, but we are not getting worse! That’s what matters most.

    I would love to try the FOF yoga series. I am 54 and I have rheumatoid arthritis. I have taken yoga but it is some of the poses are difficult if you are not as flexible as you once were. It benefits you in so many ways, meditation, breathing, relaxation, stress relief, muscle tone, confidence, posture, figure toning/shaping. I once was very athletic but age/genetics work on us as we age. I suffer from anxiety/depression as well and arthritis and exercise is beneficial in recovery. I would love to have the opportunity to try this to be able to prove to myself it is possible for anything after 50 regardless of some stumbling blocks along life’s journey.

    Thank you for the chance for the opportunity.

    I am acutely aware that I need to work on my balance to regain my confidence after tripping last year and fracturing both arms and both wrists. My yoga practice is sporadic, in part because I am never sure that I am doing a particular pose optimally. This video would be a big help!

    I’m ready to try Yoga, but there are no classes offered here for FOF – so this would be a great way to get started right!

    I think yoga is great for improving flexibility and balance. You don’t realize how much of a workout it really is. Using Iyengar yoga would help me alot at this time of my life dealing with menopause and empty nest syndrome. I need a new focus on life and would love to try this.

    I’m noticing that I’m not near as flexible as I would like to remain, My range of motion is diminishing…creaky knees and hips et al. I want to stay light and fluid and confident. Sounds like this would help!

    It would be a new perfect compliment to my current, walking/running program. I love the stretch, balance and strengthening aspects but also really need to add more stress release and meditation. Would love to try this!!

    I loved the FOF yoga series. I have been taking yoga and pilates for 6 months and I am still having trouble with the majority of yoga poses. I will definitely start using the props in the DVD to help me get the correct form. Sitting on the foot stool, using the wall and getting help from a folding chair to get the poses right is great!! I wish I had this tape 6 months ago.
