For many of us, mind-body exercise is considered mainstream. For others though, still, mind-body exercise is considered odd, weird, even “out there”. Because proper education allows us to make the most informed decisions and develop the best opinions, a series of articles will be presented in the coming months to provide a brief overview of a variety of mind-body exercise modalities, their intent, benefits, and a rationale for you to give it a try and see if it suits you! What is important is to try a variety of things and see what fits your lifestyle and improves your quality of life. This has the added benefit of improving your odds of success at weight loss and long term weight maintenance. This is true for ALL types of physical activity, not just mindful exercise!
