Hi there miss yogi!

i just made my own Top ten reasons to exercise and wanted to share with you.

i like to try different fitness programs and my friends are always asking me why should people exercise and why is exercise important so this is what i tell them again and again... i also quote statistics on physical fitness but they don't ever listen.

By the way, i just looked at your five tibetan exercises video on you tube and i love it. i might give it a shot!

But can you tell me what are the best stretching routines to do before this tibetan yoga? i am old enough to know that warm up before exercise is safest!

thanks alot,
Peter from Tampa Bay

To increase you energy- you take better care of your family when you take better care of yourself.

To lose weight ? the math is simple, more muscle means less fat.

To prepare for summer activities-want to keep up with the kids in the summer, focus your winter exercise towards the muscles you will use most.

To reduce change of injury- muscles that are toned are less likely to be hurt in regular activity.

To tone up your muscles, you don?t have to lose weight to be more toned.
