The Gentler Ways To Exercise

“Many recent studies have shown that certain exercises that have originated in Asia and specifically India, can offer just as many physical and psychological health benefits as the more vigorous exercises that often dominate Western workouts. Even better, these exercises tend to be easier on the body. For example, the gentle art of tai chi exercise not only can help build muscle, but it has been shown to help reduce arthritis symptoms and improve your balance. Whether your goal is to reduce stress, make your muscles strong and flexible, or boost your weight loss efforts with extra calorie burning, according to recent research you can find what you’re looking for in exercise disciplines, such as yoga, tai chi, or Qigong.”
