Mind Your Own (Mind-Body) Business
mind your own
MIND-BODY FITNESS HAS BEEN AROUND AWHILE, AND MANY PROFESSIONALS ARE CONDUCTING MIND-BODY CLASSES WITH APPARENT SUCCESS. IN FACT, THE 1999 IDEA FITNESS PROGRAMS SURVEY SHOWED THAT 64 PERCENT OF THE FACILITIES QUESTIONED OFFER YOGA; 35 PERCENT, TAI CHI; AND 19 PERCENT, EXERCISE BASED ON THE WORK OF JOSEPH PILATES. WHILE THE TEMPTATION MAY BE TO THROW TOGETHER A MIND-BODY PROGRAM TO CAPITALIZE ON THIS TREND, ARE WE REALLY USING ALTERNATIVE FITNESS WORKOUTS IN THE RIGHT WAY? ARE WE PUTTING OUR PROGRAMS TOGETHER THOUGHTFULLY WITH ALL THE COMPONENTS IN THE RIGHT ALIGNMENT? ARE OUR MINDFUL EXERCISE PROGRAMS TIED INTO ONE SPECIFIC TYPE OF CLASS, WHICH MAY BE A PASSING FAD?
