About the Five: Each month I offer five exercises to improve your strength, balance, flexibility, and mobility. My hope is that you will go through these on your own or with me three times a week. Some moves (like this month’s puppet arms) you could do every day.
- Clam Shell
- Puppet Arms
- Thread the Needle
- King Arthur
- Yoga Dancer
Please use your best judgment as to how suitable these are for you right now.
The November Five are here! We started working on these exercises this week in our classes and personal training sessions.
Can you try one minute of each of these moves every day this week?
