Good balance is essential at any age, and even more so as we get older. I have known Carol Dickman for over a decade and can vouch for her expertise in the area of fitness. I feel very confident in recommending this balance video to all comers who seek a healthy life. -- Raquel Welch. --Raquel Welch Emergency room physicians can all testify to the high prevalence of fall related injuries in the older adult. Many factors contribute to this vulnerability but the results are the same: pain, disability, and loss of function. Carol Dickman's 'Balance Basics and Beyond' offers the proactive health conscious individual a program designed to reduce this risk. -- Jonathan Bernfeld, M.D., Geriatric Psychiatry and Internal Medicine. --Jonathan Bernfeld, M.D.
Following the success of her two award-winning DVDs Bed Top Yoga and Seated Yoga, Carol Dickman releases Balance Basics and Beyond -- easy exercises to improve your balance, a beginner's balancing exercise program. In this DVD Carol joins two other experienced teachers in the instruction of four separate classes -- two one-on-one sessions and two group classes. Each ranges in time from 7 to 17 minutes, and all can be adjusted in degrees of difficulty. Viewers can practice their balance training with a different class daily. Continuing her initial mission -- to bring yoga to the blind and visually impaired -- one segment is especially scripted for this population. Also included are short motivational sequences and balancing tips. Known for her safe, credible, effective instructional videos, Carol Dickman's latest program, shot entirely on location in Las Vegas, is again aimed at seniors, and in this case, anyone -- regardless of age -- wishing to improve their balance. The various segments are fun, entertaining and effective.
