International Women’s Day is March 8th and it draws attention to every aspect of the female experience. A study conducted by the American Medical Association from 2018 states that young adults and female adolescents are not meeting optimal levels of daily activity. Fitness and Yoga Instructor Lisa Skidmore says for women and mothers, maintaining an active lifestyle can benefit mental and physical health.
“There are so many things that being involved and doing exercise and moving the body on a daily basis creates. It creates motiviation, it creates a self-awareness – and a self-awareness not only of the body and physical changes, but of emotional changes. Serotonin is released in the brain, oxycotin is released in the brain…” – Lisa Skidmore, Fitness and Yoga Instructor at YYoga
