    Some public pools also have aquacise. In my public pool where I lap swim, they have these classes. People with very bad arthritis and other painful problems participate. They find it very helpful, social and fun. They even have a lift to lower people into the pool and raise them out. The weightlessness facilitates less painful movement. They where this belt which keeps them upright and afloat while they move their limbs.

    Agate, thanks for the post. I did try to do the positions along with her. I am sure chair exercises would be better than not exercising at all. I may look further into this, but would love to get back to doing my original tape that I did for so many years.

    Thanks,
    Virginia

    I went through the yoga video exercise routine. I couldn't do some of them easily or at all but the effort was interesting.

    For a couple of them you have to sit sideways on a chair edge, with half of you off the chair. Not simple.
