Filmed while I was working as a health educator at a local hospital, these videos are multi-level, but skew towards beginners. Some are informative pep-talks.
I hope you find these helpful. For most, all you need is some floor space and a yoga mat. Many topics include an instructional version — to teach you the exercises — and a follow-along version.
20-minute program – instructional
A nice gentle daily work-out. Also a good injury prevention or rehab work-out for athletes.
20-minute workout – follow along
Only one exercise on a deserted island? PNFs are mine. Improve dynamic balance, range of motion, and strength.
Learn an effective technique for engaging your deepest abdominal muscles.
Things to keep in mind if you are new to working out, or getting back to working out.
Information and tips to help your body.
Recuperative program – 30 minutes
Great to do at the end of an exhausting and/or stressful day.
This video was inspired by some farmers who have been using my exercise videos to rehabilitate from the rigors of farming. I’m so happy to be able to support something I benefit from and love so much: local farms!
To improve your sleep, focus on the breathwork throughout the video. This will cue your parasympathetic nervous system to activate, setting you up for a fabulous night of sleep.
Intervals + strength + balance work
This is a nice 30 minute work-out. However production-value on this one is woefully low. Unfortunate shirt wrinkles, inaudible music, feet or hands chopped off. (And lets face it, I could use a stylist.) I wouldn’t have posted this, but it’s a good multi-level work-out.
Physioball workout – instructional
Only one piece of exercise equipment on a deserted island? I’d take a physioball.

Standard rotator cuff exercises – instructional
(I’ve since developed a more dynamic, fun way to strengthen your shoulder joint.)
Rotator cuff exercises
Strength training – instructional
You need some weights for this one. If you don’t have weights, get creative with milk jugs or soup cans, or whatever you can hold and have two of.

Foot/ankle love – instructional
Great foot and ankle strengtheners.

Best exercise and getting started pep-talk
People often ask me what is the best work-out or exercise to do. Here’s my answer.
Chair and floor exercises
For if you prefer not to be on your feet (or can’t be), you can still work-out.
