Week 3) The best stretch and strength conditioning program: YOGA! Take one class this week and send me your comments. Just like any another class situation, find the right teacher and movement level for you. Yoga is receiving a bad rap because some people are getting injured- this is merely because either the instructor or class level was not right for you, or you pushed yourself beyond a safe limit -not surprising in today’s society! Yoga’s main mantra is “do no harm“; exercise, breath work, a sense of ‘cleansing’ and feeling good about yourself and others, these are some of the many benefits of yoga.
Week 2) Let’s change our sitting habits! Think of something you can do standing, that you usually do sitting (please, not driving or bathroom duties). Today I was working with spices, and stood at the counter instead of sitting at the table. How about swinging, like this?
Please share your ideas below.
Week 1) Begin your day with a walk or run (whether you have a dog, beach, or not). Walking is the most natural exercise, and best when done outdoors, regardless of the season. It is good for the cardiovascular system, incorporates breath work, and invigorates the very soul.
