Becoming More Physically Active While Stuck Inside

Becoming More Physically Active While Stuck Inside

Date: 12/9/2020 4:00 – 4:30 PM EST

Webinar Description: Many of us have found ourselves more sedentary during the pandemic shut down, especially with the closing of gyms, yoga studios and other places where many of us (and our students) get our exercise, especially when it gets cold. Yet even if we are not exercising or doing our other routines, physical movement is still important to all of us for many reasons, both physical and mental. This brief session will introduce you some useful principles for physical activity that you can do at home without special equipment, including two key stretches for those of us who sit too much in front of a computer, as well as four kinds of activity to help provide a balanced workout appropriate for members of the Balance Section of the AALS. Our special guest will be Massachusetts Fitness Professional Tony Colesano, who has worked with me and my students to help learn his Three Laws of Motion, among other things. Come prepared to watch, but perhaps even to move, if you would like to do so.
