NWI Board of Directors member Carol Kennedy-Armbruster, also a senior lecturer at Indiana University’s School of Public Health, has shared a video session with IU student Elena, which promotes a “feel good movement” experience, guiding viewers into stretch and strength exercises.
Practicing 15 minutes of light movement, like the session above, daily will help with physical wellness, while also addressing occupational, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual wellness.
Thank you to Dr. Carol Kennedy-Armbruster and Indiana University for their contribution to wellness during this time of unease.
