    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#51] The 130 programs are designed to air daily, Monday through Friday. The 15- minute segments are frequently coupled together to fill a 30- minute time slot at the option of local programmers.

The last two shows serve as review so the viewer has a chance to make certain they followed and understood correctly. In addition, if the viewer missed a show, the Thursday and Friday review days bring them up-to-date. At the onset, the program is strictly teaching the "building blocks" of yoga exercise. As the series progresses, the work becomes more demanding. However, there is an effort to always have a fair balance of some basically simple postures mixed in so that everyone will have an opportunity to participate. duration 13:46
