Health Tip: WALKING!

The simple act of walking is abundant with health benefits that can be multiplied if we are mindful of our opposing sides. Jonathan FitzGordon, a Brooklyn based yoga teacher and creator of “The Core Walking Program,” is passionate about the balancing of our left and right sides.

“The body is a self-healing machine meant to regenerate itself through proper movement. ” FitzGordon says, “a body that walks successfully through life uses both sides of the body in opposition. When the right leg moves forward, the left arm moves forward as well, and this essential action is missing from the movement patterns of so many people!” ~ Carla Melucci Ardito
