Beginning Wednesday, January 21, 11-12pm, David Shadbolt will be offering this 8-session class at Bowen Island Yoga.
Exercise is the best anti-aging treatment. However, most individuals seem to prefer being sedentary and risk having many chronic diseases associated with age. Maybe it is because we are completely surrounded with too many so-called “easy ways to reverse the clock.” Unfortunately, these quick fixes only work on the outside. What about the inside? Our heart, lungs, muscles, and bones? They too suffer the effects of aging. As we get older, we tend to loose muscle and bone mass, flexibility becomes limited, the production of hormones declines, cardiorespiratory capacity diminishes, and cognitive function becomes impaired. The good news is that living an active lifestyle can make your body stronger and more resistant to the wear and tear of time. Regular physical activity contributes to maintain/build muscle and bone mass, keeps your heart and lungs attuned, improves metabolic function and hormonal production—all of which prevent many chronic diseases related to aging.
It is never too late to start—the human body is able to respond to exercise at any age. Join David Shadbolt, a highly experienced personal trainer, to kick start your practice in 2015.
