One really neat option is online exercise courses. A little bit of searching on Google or you tube reveals that there are quite a number of exercise instructors, physical therapists, and energetic people in the world who are willing to guide you through online exercise. A cool website that we have used with great success is wwwblackswanyoga.tv For $8 per month, you can sign up for a teacher's "channel" and take as many classes as you would like over the course of 30 days. Here's why we like it: classes are on your schedule rather than theirs; you can choose whether you want a 5 minute stretch that targets one muscle group or a full 60 minute class; it's available everywhere, whether you are at home or on the road and; you can even share your login with friends and family!
If yoga is not your thing or you are feeling tired but need some stretching, consider a Thai Massage. This ancient form of massage was developed in Thailand and is still taught today in Bangkok at the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. It involves yoga-like stretches that are invigorating and designed to improve circulation. Luckily you don't have to go all the way to Thailand to get this massage. You can just call us at Body Works to book an appointment.
Whether you do online yoga or book a Thai Massage, our goal is for you to feel as relaxed as that Reclining Buddha looks.
