“The Yoga Show” 30-minute Educational Yoga Videos: Instructor and Producer, Gwenn Jones, Auburn Yoga Studio by and for Auburn Community TV, channel 20. The older of these videos (pre-2019) were shot before hi-Def cameras became available for ACTV by Philip Jacques, Cody Hitchcock, Paula Johnston. These days, everything is hi-Def and hi-Praise! Now, practice, practice, practice.

The Yoga Show: “Gentle Neck & Shoulder Stretch for Seniors” 4-2022 (30 min.)
Grab a strap or belt. Relax and enjoy an ALL-SEATED Super-Gentle, Super-slow stretch sequence for the neck and shoulders. Wonderful work is felt with shoulder and neck rotations, super-soft, comfortable back rotation. Moves are slow and explanations are explicit. Fine for Beginners, less-mobile individuals, or those just wanting gentle focused stretch. Filmed by and for ACTV.

The Yoga Show: “Seniors Gentle Chair Stretch” 03-2022 (30 min.)
Grab a chair and a cushion (optional) for this super slow and gentle stretch for SENIORS. We will glide into deliberate stretches for the back, shoulders, torso, and hips. These yoga chair moves are undemanding and include seated Side stretch, Goddess, Warrior and reverse warrior, with Hip flexor and low back stretches. Today’s practice, specifically for seniors, moves super slowly for plenty of time to prepare before the move, then release after. Always remember to focus on consistent breathing, and not holding the breath. Have fun! Filmed by ACTV / Auburn Community Television

“River Yoga” Just for the joy! October 2012 
Want to relax for a couple of minutes? Spending the day with one of my favorite friends combined with yoga at the river. It doesn’t get better, and this video never gets tiring (for me)! Shot, produced and edited by Paula Johnston, Videographer Gold Country Videos, Auburn, California. 

The Yoga Show: “Long Tall Backs” 04-2019 (30 min.)
Stronger backs, improved posture, and reduced back pain are the results of practicing these very deliberate yoga postures. Today’s practice is suitable for high-beginner – to intermediate practitioners. Modifications are shown for beginner’s ease. Enjoy the slow warm-up. Come away feeling energized, flexible, taller, and more able to function day-to-day. Remember: Practice-Stop-Repeat. Practice-Stop-Repeat. Any “practice” means consistency. Stay strong.

The Yoga Show: “Stretching for Success 2” 08-2017 (28 min.)
If you love stretching and loosening the low back, this is a great practice for your day! This session really moves and grooves the hip flexors, low back, even the achilles. An intermediate yogi will enjoy this, or if you are a beginner, please modify-down a bit. Fun!! (A bit challenging on this cover, I look waaaaay thin for some reason. ) Recorded August 2017 by ACTV.

The Yoga Show: “Happy Digestion 3” 08-2016
Can we have happy digestion? Sure. Follow these slow, comfortable yoga moves and stretches to enrich our digestive process from the small to large intestines. Our intestines work hard, give them a little break, a little natural help, and a sweet reward, right? Recorded in 2016 at Atwood Video and ACTV Auburn, produced by instructor, Gwenn Jones.

The Yoga Show: “Iron Backs” 03-2015

The posture tweaking is killer in this vid. The recording is fuzzy and hi-def-LESS, but the value and challenge makes it a keeper! 

Variations in plank work our backs in this challenging, but super-slow session. Plank pose strengthens all Core muscles as well as the arms and shoulders while building stamina for overall yoga practice. Learn to strengthen the standing leg in Warrior 3 (Virabhadrasana 3) using a stabilizing prop.
