No Excuses November Challenge

“I am not working out today, because I have a function at home”, “I was busy in a meeting, so will not workout today”, “I am tired today and feel lazy”

and the list of excuses never ends. This November let's say No to excuses and YES to become more mobilised. As we know, our body has two major joints - Hips & Shoulders. Both of these joints are responsible and affect our daily activities. Whether it is about sitting down on the ground or performing any yoga pose, these two joints play a major role. Therefore, this month’s challenges are interesting and you will love performing them. One for your shoulder and one for your hips, try both of them and feel the difference.
