The sun is shining a littler bit later each evening, letting us know that summer is here! With each change of season comes an opportunity for a change in the way you move your body!
A body in motion is a happy body, but there is more to moving than just doing it! A change in the way you move is important to preventing excess stress on the body from repetitive movement patterns. Variety in your movement is crucial to keeping your body free from those pesky aches and pains!
Plus, diversification in movement keeps movement fun and exciting! So here is a list of summer moves to add to your bucket list.
