I’m super excited about this special health and retreat that Yogita and I are offering this Summer. Exercise is central to healthy aging. We need to be giving our bodies consistent signals that we are using our muscles and pushing our “repair & regenerate” anabolic metabolism.
I just came across an article in the Vancouver sun that really highlights the importance of pushing up on our exercise capacity if we want to maintain our vitality as we age. In this experiment conducted at McMaster University in Hamilton scientists reversed the aging effects of mice that had been genetically altered to grow old quickly by forcing them to engage in 45 minutes of active exercise three times a week. Premature aging was halted and the beneficial effects were noted in every cell and tissue in the bodies of these exercising mice.
