Moving Your Exercise Outdoors

Pin it button big

We got such a treat this morning! Upon arriving at yoga class (a minute or two late), we found an empty studio, but through the window saw everyone gathering out on the roof deck for todays practice. It was soooo wonderful to be literally saluting the sun! It got us thinking how we should shift more of our exercise to the outdoors.

In addition to being enjoyable, the fresh air and heat of the sun made all the difference in going just that little bit further with our practice. Deep breathing and warmed up muscles made for what seemed to be an especially effective session. The change of pace was welcome too - making the usual routine seem fresh.

Running and biking are givens to take out of the gym and on to the streets in warm weather, but we're wondering how many of you with outside spaces use them as a spot for exercise at home?
