Yoga is sometimes associated with a series of difficult poses, but the underlying principles include learning how to breathe and relax. Proper breathing can reduce stress and improve health.The benefits of yoga and relaxed breathing techniques include improvement in symptoms from clinical depression, heart disease, arthritis, insomnia and a number of medical conditions.
Piano Yoga is a method devised by Sonny Stancarone. Piano playing is a therapeutic, natural relaxation tool and combined with deep, mindful breathing, it can release the relaxation response. By practicing "Piano Yoga" using Sonny's Piano Yoga DVD kit anyone can play piano and enjoy the health benefits associated with yoga.

Paula and Sonny's Family Connection

They are an aunt and nephew with years of yoga practice supporting their respective areas of expertise. They have teamed up with this Special Offer to the general public via the Internet.
Sonny is proof that yoga can change your life. As a child, age 5, he suffered from severe and frequent asthma attacks. At the age of 10, a doctor put him on a nightly regimen of stretching, diaphragmatic breathing and relaxation exercises. After just two months, he was cured. He continued doing his routine every night thereafter and went from a child who was unable to attend school on a regular basis, to an "A" student who set school records in Track and Field. At 21, he was one of the top yoga instructors in the country, working with Jack LaLaine (Bally's) gyms in Brooklyn and Long Island and teaching at Adelphi University. With a Masters degree in Exercise Physiology from Adelphi and over 40 years of teaching, he has applied his expertise on both piano and yoga to create the Piano Yoga method and package it as a DVD kit.
Paula Montalvo has also experienced the benefits of yoga firsthand. At the age of 40, Paula had severe pain in her upper back. Paula tried yoga and was impressed with it's health benefits. In fact, one of Paula's first yoga instructors was her nephew, Sonny. It did not take long for the yoga stretches to give Paula dramatic relief from her back pain. Seeing the results, a number of Paula and Sonny's family members attended classes, as Paula and Sonny continued to grow closer in their mutual love and respect. Yoga has been a constant in both of their lives.
With this unique offer, you can also relax and enjoy the benefits of yoga.
