This all-in-one gentle/beginner workout is created for seniors and beginners who need to start at a slower pace yet want to work the entire body. This workout includes 14 minutes of standing cardio, 8 minutes of strength exercises, 1 minute of balance exercises and 7 minutes of stretching and we’ll finish with a 3 minute mindfulness breathing exercise. As always, this is low impact. Please use your judgment on when to modify exercises. If you feel a move isn’t good for you, please change the exercise to a move that is more suitable for you. This workout can be made easier by sitting for the strength workouts and by using 1 lb weights (or even no weights). If you want to make it harder, pick up the pace during the fast walking periods and use 2 lb weights and remain standing during the strength portion.

Hi Jules…..I enjoyed the variety so much in this class and the mindfulness 3 minutes was very relaxing. I finished up the 7-day stand-up for seniors today and I know there is 1 more to this set. I am going to find another class to go along with it for tomorrow. I am so grateful for all the time you take in making these programs…..have a blessed and awesome day.

Missy Garcia says:

I feel very relaxed after this workout, Jules. The weights were tough on the arms, but I got through it, and is much needed.🤣 I was so ready for the stretching which I thoroughly enjoyed. The bell sound let me relax even before the mindfulness exercise in the end. So we’ll done! 😊💛

Juanita Hill says:

Fabulous. The strength training really pushed me..thank you.

Marie-Therese Hayes says:

Finally got to this one. Loved it although I will feel it tomorrow. My shoulders are pretty weak so this will be good to build up some strength. Loved the mindfulness at the end. Thanks for another great workout.

Barbie c says:

I give this a thumbs up at the start because I know I’m gonna love it.

Roehampton Tenants says:

This must be your best workout yet. But then we feel that about almost every video you post. The mindfulness part is lovely. Jennifer Innes at Ottawa Meditation & Wellness has full 30 min meditation videos on her channel. Can't wait to try them out as well. Thanks Jules.

Joy Full says:

Thank you! I have chronic fatigue and winter is always the hardest for me to exercise. This is gentle enough that I can do as much as I can handle so I know that I've done some movement for the day. I really appreciate the very gentle approach.

Heather Resnick says:

That was lovely. Thanks!

Mary Wilson says:

Looking forward to doing this one once we get back from a long overdue vacation. Today we walked about 5,000 steps (we had to rest/nap because of jet lag/overnight flight—probably more tomorrow.
We missed our international flight by about 15 minutes, but we ran/sprinted from one end of the terminal to the other, about 1.3 miles trying to catch it. We really got our steps in that day, and we walked and walked all over Philadelphia the next day while waiting for our next flight the next evening, and got a ton of steps in.
We had planned on at least doing a 10-15 minute workout in the evening, but have been absolutely exhausted.
We haven’t left you; we’ll be back soon.

Frances Oha says:

Sometimes I just need this kind of workout.No weights just movement .Thank you.

Jane Slesser says:

Thank you and loved the classical music at the end. The "bell" sound is helpful too as it lets me shut my eyes and relax in the knowledge that i won't miss anything.

Ruth Mannino says:

I like the mindfulness at the end also! Hope you include it more often. Thanks!
