BLOG – Variety is the Spice, when it comes to movement and exercise
Upcoming Events and Jamie’s travel teaching schedule
I was reminded today, as I was hiking with B Dog, that we need it all when it comes to types of movement and exercise. I’ve spent too much time at my computer the last few days and decided it was time to step away – even if the “to do” list wasn’t done. Time to step out, get some fresh air and be in the mountains. Some claim that there is one thing that “does it all”, but it isn’t true. Our body’s not only need different types of movement, but ideally a variety of environments, too.
Most of you that know me know I absolutely love and believe in the practice of yoga. But it doesn’t do it all – physically speaking. I need hiking, biking, skiing, dancing and swimming, too! We all need this variety for our bodies, brains and heart. We need to be in different environments, atmospheres, climates once in a while.
So, next week, we’re spending a few days at the Fruita Mountain Bike Festival. Although I’ve been skiing this year, its not the same as mountain biking. Its going to kick my butt I think. But its good for me to be challenged. I know this.
So if you can today, take even just a few minutes to move differently. Dance in your kitchen, run up the street, take child’s pose and breathe. We need it all. Try something new.
