Wellness Wednesday

Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.
 John F. Kennedy

On a previous post, I failed to mention one of my favorite yoga dvds, Kundalini Yoga for Beginners and Beyond (shown below). Now, I'm not a huge fan of all aspects of Kundalini yoga (I can live without the chanting and the turbans, thank you very much!), but there are several things that I really like about it.  One of those things is called the Five Tibetan Rights (which is just a series of 5 postures that are repeated 21 times). There are claims that doing the Five Tibetan Rights every day will produce almost miraculous health benefits. I don't really know about all that, but I do know what I like about it. I like the simplicity of it. I like the fact that you work every part of your body in about 23 minutes.  I like the fact that I can do it anywhere, anytime, even without the dvd. I like the fact that between each series of poses, you just sit and breath. I like the fact that it ends with a meditation. Basically, it's just moving for a while and breathing for a while, moving a little more and breathing a little more.  I can handle that!

 If you'd like to try it, I posted links below :)

I hope you are well on this Wednesday~ Juli
