Rethink Your Position: Reshape Your Exercise, Yoga, and Everyday Movement, One Part at a Time
Published May 2023
Daily aches and pains can feel unavoidable, but we can start feeling better by moving better. Everyone knows we need to move more, but few know how to get each of our joints moving better so that moving more often—and more of our body parts—becomes easier and easier over time.
Keep your patrons physically active with our “Movement Through the Ages and Stages” set
In today’s culture of convenience, the people you serve—from children to seniors—have become much more sedentary. With more movement, we could all be feeling so much better.
Help increase your patrons’ physical activity with our “ages and stages” set, created to get stiff and sore body parts moving better, and to get people of all ages moving more all day, not just during exercise time.
