Free exercise videos via the UK's National Health Service
« on: January 01, 2019, 06:15:21 pm »
I can't recall whether I've shared this site previously (and I also don't know whether these videos are in a format which will actually play outside of the UK...)

But our National Health Service (NHS) website has a 'fitness studio' section on which they've made available a number of free exercise videos:

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/nhs-fitness-studio

I find the 'Pilates with MS and Fibromyalgia' one particularly helpful, along with 'Beditation' (very basic yoga), which might actually be a useful resource for people who'd like to take up meditation but are struggling with starting out.

(There's obviously loads of exercise videos on YouTube, but I'm wary of trying just anything because I don't want to risk injury, so I'm confident that the above should be pretty safe.)

Hopefully these will be of use to some members on here?

I just tried one. It played for my Ohio-located IP address. so I assume they will probably play anywhere in the US.

Oh good!  Well I certainly hope they're beneficial for some fellow Cauldronites.
