Editorial Review
  by Shirley A. Brown, MA, CCC-SLP

"Yogability and You" is a "chair yoga" video geared towards   people with MS. It provides a "soft and gentle" approach to yoga that combines   simple breathing, relaxation and stretching exercises.
  It was produced as a tape, that encourages body movement, through a series of   easy movements. It is both relaxing and energizing to watch and to participate   in.
    In addition to the videotape Ms. Sidelman has developed a CD, that puts you   at ease, through the use of the calming sound of her voice, as well as that   of the ocean combined with soothing music. It is meant to "release body stress,   relax your mind and rejuvenate your spirit".
  It certainly was a most pleasant and relaxing experience to review this video   program, as well as to listen to the separate CD entitled "Relaxation with Shelley   Sidelman" .
