Get Healthy With Yoga:
      Beginning Yoga for the Blind and Visually Impaired is a dynamic,
inspiring five-CD set produced by Gretchen Hein, a certified Kripalu yoga
instructor, and Marty Klein, a blind author and workshop facilitator. The
goal of the series is to help blind and visually impaired people use yoga
to reclaim and sustain strong, flexible bodies. The series also provides
encouragement and information about how to find a local yoga class that
will be suitable for blind or visually impaired people.
      The packaging has bold, dark lettering with a contrasting background
so it can be read by those with low vision. Each CD is numbered with bold
markings as well. Gretchen's descriptions of yoga postures are detailed and
explained in language specifically intended to be clear to blind students,
while Marty's comments and insights as a blind man create an informative
and enjoyable learning experience. The CDs are engineered so that each pose
is on a separate track. This allows the listener to design his or her own
yoga sequence once the series is familiar. The set also contains one CD
that is similar to a yoga class. Another CD has specific tracks that inform
prospective yoga teachers how to be thoughtful toward a blind student.
Students are encouraged to share this CD with a teacher of their choice.
The cost of the five-CD package is $39.95 plus shipping and handling. You
