Warming up for exercise – cat stretch
Getting your body warmed up and moving before stronger exercise is important and it’s not just heat. Consider that if you’ve come from another activity, just woken from sleep, been sitting at a computer or doing some other from physical labour. Your body will be imbalanced and the purpose of the warm up sequences is bring your body parts and systems onto the same ‘page’.
This is a good opportunity to become aware of your physicality and any areas where muscles may be tight or fatigued. Warm ups prepare the body and mind before doing a stronger exercise which may have the potential to injure.
One of the most

That’s right, grow your bosom with exercise
Just by exercising like building arms or legs, some experts say that you can actually build breast mass, but how does it work?
Its well known that high cardio cross training often reduces breast size, so you want to avoid that and instead focus on exercises that improve your posture. You may have a tendency to slouch, and lets face it, most people slouch. So the first exercises are those that help you to feel good about yourself so that you can stand tall. By standing tall, keeping your chest lifted, your shoulders back and your head high, your body takes on a lovelier shape and what bust you have is carried better.

A process of personal and social responsibility

In today’s modern world there is a continuous argument going on about what it means or what is to be healthy and what constitutes a healthy lifestyle.
For the sake of this argument, health is the absence of suffering which includes the absence of disease and social disharmony. In other words, the bodies and minds of every individual in society need to be healthy and able to function as they were designed.
Unfortunately we are living in an age where suffering is rampant and ignorance rules. The idea of democracy was that we would all become sufficiently enlightened to a happy, healthy and peaceful world. Unfortunately that has not

The world’s most ancient science
Yes, Yoga is the world’s oldest science with a history dating back at least 15,000 years. In the Christianised Western culture, people may think this is impossible, but through the discoveries of archaeology and the translation of ancient texts, this is completely verified.
As a science, yoga does not set out to define or capitalise on anything, rather it is a step-by-step process, a system of self-study and evaluation through which health and vitality grows.
Although yoga developed in India, its practices are common to all people regardless of skin colour or gender. As the world opened up during the 19th century, seekers of truth began travelling to India and India yogis began travelling to

The worlds oldest science
We do know not how long mankind has been walking the earth, but it seems reasonable to presume that mankind has always had a healthy ‘self interest’. But once basic survival is taken care of, what is one to do with this self-interest?
In recent history we have mapped the universe and dissected almost everything on this planet as we try to figure out what to do with life. Unfortunately doing stuff undermines the fact that we are human beings and we are here to be healthy, to be happy and to be joyful or even blissful.
Most people are happy enough if they experience a few transient pleasures and if you look at the

Feldenkrais Method teaches, through gentle, non-invasive movement, how we can improve our capabilities to function in our daily lives. This is achieved by the adaptability of our nervous system.
Feldenkrais frees the body, not by stretching exercises or aerobics, but by somatic learning (the body experienced from within). The exercises are precisely programmed movement patterns to stimulate the brain’s release of muscular tightness and pain that has resisted all other efforts and techniques.
Feldenkrais teachers usually find upon examination of people with bad backs, that it’s a conditioning problem and not a medical one. In reality the sufferer has back muscles in a painful state of tension that predisposes them to muscle spasms.
The bad news is that your

In search of the ideal

Oh to be slim and have that ideal body. Unfortunately, not everyone can achieve that ideal body because our physical characteristics are based based on our genetics. But while we cannot change the shape of our bones and our foundational features, we can make the best of what we’ve got because we know that fat and out of shape is not healthy.
Some big people live healthy normal lives, but those who live longest have a tendency to be fairly slim with very little excess body fat. We accumulate body fat through poor diet, a poor lifestyle and a lack of exercise.
Unfortunately our diet and
