Today’s show focused on alternative fitness modalities for those who can’t do conventional fitness –  those with disabilities, limited mobility, seniors, those who haven’t exercised in a while and those with injuries. Mai Jara, Director of Adapted Aquatics at Cal State Northridge (CSUN), spoke about what adapted aquatics are, who benefits from them, and the marvelous resources available to the public at CSUN. She also talked about where else to find services, and how the programs at CSUN are training others to teach adapted aquatics.

Susan Winter Ward, an internationally acclaimed yoga instructor who offers resources for seniors, boomers and new beginners, spoke about “seated chair yoga”. Susan conducted several yoga exercises that listeners can do at work, when in front of the computer, or if they are limited to a chair. Susan offers award winning DVD’s and MP3’s through her company, “Sitting Fit” – if you’re interested she’s offering a 20% discount when you enter the code KPCRADIO in the discount code box. Super cool!
