Happy Spring to you!
As Spring moves into full swing, many people are talking about getting outside and enjoying the nice weather. Gardening is one of the top physical activities that they are talking about!
Some people, though, struggle with the demands of gardening and yard work. The stimulus, meaning digging, bending, lifting, raking, etc., is in many cases too much for their joints particularly if they have osteoarthritis. In this case, reducing the stimulus' load may be the answer.
In this week's Physical Activity QuickPlay, I talk about the possible lifesaving (and pain saving) effects of being physically active for our joint health. Osteoarthritis is common and I reflect on WHY being physically active is so important (picture me rubbing my hands together with anticipation and excitement to dive into the anatomy and physiology).
Need some help with your joint health? Simply reply to this email and we can set up an appointment.
One other fun opportunity coming up is an in person workshop.
You heard it right. In person at Yoga Within in Edmonton.
The workshop is Feeling your yoga: Bringing more awareness to your practice and will be on Saturday June 11 from 9-11 am. Space is limited so register early if you want to work in person with me!
Stay well and happy moving,
