According to the Roman calendar, the ides of any month is marked with a full moon. It corresponds to the 13th day of most months, but the 15th of March, May, July, and October. In 44 BC, the Ides of March became significant: Julius Caesar was assassinated by a group which included Brutus and Cassius. (See William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.)
The Ides of March, 2019, is important of other reasons as well: this day can begin a new, personal march, a march toward fitness and well-being. This type of march leads to increased energy, positive attitude, lightness of spirit. Smiles are contagious, as witnessed by JoRene’s picture.
Equipment: Non-skid yoga mats, knee pad, 3# hand weights, athletic shoes that are supportive but not too grippy. Water bottle – hydration revitalizes. Fragrance-Free, please. Share the floor with kindness.
Word to the wise: For your safety, good balance and lateral movement are needed in these quick aerobic classes. A fall may cause serious injury. Please check with your doctor prior to beginning this or any exercise regimen. All Free Fitness Classes are too large to accommodate those who need special supervision. If you have shoulder, back, knee problems, anything that is painful, it is advisable to join a smaller, well-supervised class first, and consult a personal trainer or medical professional to learn modifications that are suitable to your condition. Participants need to use their judgment and body awareness… altering each exercise to prevent injury. Be careful dear ones. Welcome!
