Strike A Pose

yoga for beginners at

Are you a newbie, middle-aged, or someone who just needs help getting started with a workout routine? And one that won’t make you limp for days? Workouts that start out easy (especially if you haven’t exercised in years), workouts for the seasons, workouts with or without exercise equipment, and more — all while having fun and not hurting yourself in the process?

Then this is for you … and you’re just going to love it.  I’ve created an easy workout plan that starts slow, eases you into the “work out” mode, and one that actually has results. And it’s all FREE (don’t you just love that word?)

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream” ~ C. S. Lewis

So this is my goal, this is my dream … to make a difference in myself and in other people’s lives. By sharing my knowledge of good health, whether it be physical, mental, or eating healthy. And to be a good example by practicing what I preach … this is where 50friendly comes in.

The first topic of better living I’ll be addressing is PHYSICAL HEALTH.  I’m going to start out slow since I haven’t worked out in weeks, er months, um a year?  Yeah, it’s been a while. And from what I’ve seen, the best way to ease into a good workout program is with YOGA.

No hard-core poses that twist you into a pretzel, but for now a daily routine of 5-6 yoga poses just for us beginners. Poses that will improve balance, flexibility, strength, and your daily energy level, which is especially good if you’re a senior.

So ladies, my birthday is Tuesday May 1st, and I can’t think of a better way to start off this new year. Are you up for the challenge and ready to take that first step with me? If that’s a yes – then check back on 50friendly and get ready for some beginners yoga

About Me and My Quest To Get It Back

Is this you?

… up there in age, taking care of everyone from your family to your dog to your neighbors, but not yourself…
… you feel like it’s too late — that you won’t be able to get your body, your health, or your self esteem back again…

If so, I’m right there with you — you are not alone.  My name is Denise and I am a 50+ woman on a quest to get it all back.

I’ve tried those workouts that promise to make you look like J-Lo or Jane Fonda (remember her infamous “feel the burn”?).  Workouts like Body Bootcamp (yes, bootcamp – like in military bootcamp)… TaeBo with Billy Blanks (still have my old VHS tapes)… Beachbody P90X (which just about killed me)… and unfortunately each workout plan only lasted about six weeks.  My body transformed into a walking mass of pain, and I honestly couldn’t stand working out for 60-90 minutes in my home or in a gym. If I’m going to spend that time moving around, I really want to be doing something fun while reaping the benefits that come with it.

Which leads me to my blog — 50Friendly — where I’ve discovered an amazing way to get back in shape without risking damage to my joints, bones, and especially my knees.

Are you still with me? Because I want to tell you how you too can join along with me and get the results you’ve been wanting for years. I am so excited and looking forward to eliminating the back fat, the love handles, and the belly pouch. And am equally excited to share what I know about healthy living.

Can you get excited too? Come on – let’s transform together.

I’ve got so much to offer here on … workouts that start out easy (especially if you haven’t exercised in years), workouts for the seasons (like not riding your bike dead nuts in the summer when it’s 100 degrees out), workouts with and without exercise equipment, and more — all while having fun and not killing yourself in the process.

So let’s do this – let’s start this journey together.  It’s not too late, why wait !!

Make sure to tune back in and check out my next post. I promise it won’t disappoint 😊
