Hope all US residents had a fabulous 4th of July celebration! Did you include some healthy recipes from my previous posts? Grilled Peaches is always a good one for summer holidays.
Today I am sharing a short video of the best way to get up (and down) from the floor. So many people in my classes for seniors say they can’t get down on the floor because they’ll never be able to get back up, yet when I show them how simple and safe it can be, they have no problem!
If you’re afraid of getting stuck down on the floor, or if you know someone who is, please take a look, and share:
Notice that my feet are a several inches apart. I’ve seen some people try this with their feet too close together, which makes it harder to balance, so make sure yours are apart.
You simply reverse the pattern to get down onto the floor.
Now there’s no reason that you can’t take a Yoga or Pilates class! Join us at the Claire Teague Sr. Center, in Great Barrington, or the West Springfield Sr. Center! We have a lot of fun AND get strong in the process!
Best of Health,
