I have decided that I am going to have a work-in week and give my body a break from vigorous exercise. I think it is good for the mind and the body to do this a few times a year. This week is my time (guilt free :).
However, just because I am taking the week off, doesn't mean you have to. :)
A few weeks ago, I shared with you a full-body, high intensity 30 minute workout. Today, I am going in the opposite direction: A 60 minute, lower intensity workout with a focus on breathing, strengthening and stretching.
This pilates and yoga inspired workout will leave you feeling stronger, more relaxed and refreshed.
Note: Remember to modify exercises as needed, drink plenty of water and check with your doc before you begin any exercise program.
