by: Aryn Gatto It’s that time of the year again: our New Year’s resolutions may be in the rear view mirror, work is keeping you on your toes (or rather seated at your desk!), and although there are little signs of spring appearing here and there, winter continues to linger, not yet having released its grasp and make room for all things spring, which tend to encourage us to go for that spontaneous evening jog or Sunday bike ride.

Christie Preston of Preston Fitness and the Beauty and the Bod Blog has been a longtime supporter and friend of Memory Ball. Christie is a stellar personal and group trainer who promotes healthy habits and exercise as a way to live a better life -- and trust us when we say, her enthusiasm is infectious. Not only that, but Christie has a very positive view on working out, she believes in balance. We love her because she won't make us feel badly about having a cupcake or 2, but... she may make us do extra burpees. We hope you love this video as much as we love working out with Christie. 

January has come and gone, but your resolution to be more active doesn't need to. Our guest blogger, Kathleen Beveridge, has provided some yoga tips that will keep your brain and body healthy, and help you stay on track with your workout routine. yogaRegular yoga practice, meditation and physical postures are starting to spread as more and more research is done on the benefits of these activities. Let’s discuss how yoga can help those with Alzheimer’s, as well as how yoga helps to stimulate brain health. For those already diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, incorporating a regular yoga practice (with modifications and adjustments based on stage of the disease) allows for gentle physical activity, can help to reduce depression, and also provides social interaction. Yoga is based on muscle memory, rather than an intangible thought, yet this movement is actually beneficial for brain and body health.
