MEDITATION & YOGA
Meditation combined with Yoga, a form of meditation where you perform a series of postures and controlled breathing exercises to promote flexibility, can give you a sense of calm that benefits both your emotional well-being and overall health. Recent studies show that just ten minutes of daily meditation can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure and boost the immune system.
Exercises done in the water puts less stress on joints and allows people with arthritis a reprieve from pain. Water's natural buoyancy, resistance and decreased joint impact make it an ideal exercise medium. And you don't even need to know how to swim to take part in these awesome aerobics!
