Time for a 10+min walk in this unusually warm weather!! Other activities that is appropriate for this lunch workout is raking leafs, chop firewood, put away the Halloween decoration (outside)…. be creative 

While going on a walk please take a photo of something that is making you feel good! Share the photo once we’re back 12:50. 



The benefits of a midday workout are multiple. Exercising at noon (or thereabouts) increases your metabolism for the rest of your workday instead of just the evening hours. It also invigorates you, getting you more easily through the usual afternoon slump.

This is harder than it looks!  It is called “Active Stretching”, and  you will get a workout on one set of muscles while stretching the opposite set.  Each stretch is held for 1 full minute (the timer is in the upper right of the video).  This type of stretching is very good for mobility, as well as for warmups before more strenuous workouts!  Let us know how you like this, eh?

I really enjoy this yoga instructor.  She encourages everyone to operate at their own pace and listening to your individual sensations.

Stretching Circle
  • Do a gentle twist about 15 minutes after you’ve eaten. Twist to the right, and hold on to your chair or desk. Look over your right shoulder, and take a few deep breaths. Then repeat on the left side. This helps your internal organs function more efficiently.
  • Do a side-stretch. While sitting down, reach your right arm up over your head, and towards the left. Feel a stretch in the right side of your body, and breathe for 3 breaths. Repeat on the left side.
  • Clasp your hands overhead, reaching towards the ceiling, and gently arch your low back to stretch out the front of your body.
  • “D-Claw” forearm and four-finger stretch
  • Bicep/Tricep Arm Stretch
  • “Cobra” (yoga back stretch)

Today we spent some time talking & getting to know one another.  We discussed what we each already do for exercise, and there were some terrific answers!  Here is a list of some of the ways to exercise that Connections students and staff already enjoy:  Yoga, Cross fit, Basketball, Skateboarding, Dance Fitness Classes, Ice Skating, Hiking, and Weight lifting!  It was a beautiful sunny fall day so following our discussion we went for a quick 10 minute walk as our exercise for today.  So excited for class tomorrow
