Finding Time to Exercise
It is very important to keep our immune system fit. And when you have a busy lifestyle, not finding time to exercise can create stress and anxiety. !
Stop here!!… and take a deep breath…….
What if you could change the situation? What if you could actually make GOOD USE of the little time you might have available?
View it this way: This is an excellent opportunity to commence a new habit: exercising at home, hotel, work. Even if it’s only 15 or 20 minutes, I assure you, you will notice the difference. I want to introduce you to Intrepid Breath.
It is an amazing way to practice yoga whenever you want and wherever you prefer. Wendy Campbell has her own history of cancer, and she found yoga profoundly helpful in her journey. She founded “Intrepid Breath” to allow people to benefit from yoga at home. You can read more about her and her mission on her website: www.intrepidbreath.com
Although I haven’t had the pleasure to meet Wendy personally yet, I met her business partner, Luigi Cassinelli. We seem to have a similar philosophy about helping cancer patients and when I asked them to give a helping hand to those who couldn't afford the subscription (which is only £16 per month), Wendy and her partner agreed to give 1 free subscription for every 5 subscribers referred by me.
So the more people subscribe, the more can benefit from the healing power of yoga!!
The only thing you have to do is stating my name in the field of “additional information” when you subscribe.
If this wasn’t generous enough, Wendy and Luigi also offered to give free vouchers to try one lesson for free!
Now you have no excuse! :-)
