Activity is an important part of the Weight Watchers Plan. It’s an important part of living a healthy life.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t born loving to exercise. Enjoying exercise is something I’ve had to work to cultivate. With practice and determination, I’ve learned to look forward to my daily walks and time on the yoga mat. They’ve become an integral part of my life.
Heck, I enjoyed the benefits of yoga so much, I even became certified to teach it. (Who ever would have thought? )
There are all kinds of beginning yoga DVDs out there. Some are perfect for the young and athletic, while others are better suited for more mature audiences!
As a 49-year-old yoga teacher, who came to yoga late in life as a way of coping with severe back pain and sciatica, and who specializes in providing private and small group yoga to mature women, I prefer my yoga on the gentle, slow and safe side. (At this point in my life, I don’t feel the need to try to twist myself into a pretzel or risk injuring my neck doing headstands.)
I want my yoga to help keep me strong, flexible, balanced, energized, and relaxed so I’m ready to get the most out of life.
