"Bed Top Yoga"

This audio cassette guides the listener through gentle warm-up stretches, then four modified Yoga poses, and finally relaxation, all while lying flat on your back in bed. While not geared specifically for people living with HIV/AIDS, it offers an experience of Yoga for the injured, the ailing, or the elderly who may be unable to perform a more vigorous practice. The tape is by Carol Dickman, a certified teacher in the Bikram and Kripalu traditions. She has a pleasant voice, and any practitioner can benefit from her advice to listen to one's own body without self-judgment or striving for an external goal. Carol sells the tape for $10, plus $2.50 shipping. For more information, including audio samples, or to order a copy, visit Carol's Bed Top Yoga page.
