Stretch of the Month
Head to Kneww! How to – Sit on the floor with legs extended in front of you. Bend one leg, bringing the heel of the foot as close to the groin as possible. Turn your body slightly so you face out over the extended leg. Inhale and raise your arms over head. Exhale and begin to move forward slowly. Try to keep the back as straight as possible. When you’ve moved as far forward as you can, lower the arms and grasp your foot, or leg. Hold the position for a moment and breathe. When done, straighten up and do the other side
Exercise of the Month
Mountain Climbers! How to – Start in push up position. Rapidly pull alternating knees toward chest until exhaustion. Keep hips in line with shoulders only moving the lower body.
If you are tired of eating the same types of fruits, summer is the perfect time to experiment with trying something different. Instead of just purchasing your normal fruits such as bananas, apples and oranges, add apricots, kiwis and plums to your shopping cart.
