National Heart Month


Its seems that February and hearts have become synonymous. Naturally, Valentines Day is the obvious culprit for this association, but there may be more reasons than you think. The month of February is in fact National Heart Month and it is amazing all of the simple activities you can add to your life and improve your heart health. This year the American Heart Association has dedicated February 2012 to raising awareness towards women's heart health. Today we will focus on the different locations and services Downtown Lynchburg has to offer that will help everyone get their heart in great shape!

One great way to improve your heart health is by practicing yoga. Yoga is a wonderful way to exercise your body as well as providing you with stress relieving relaxation and meditation techniques.

Another fun activity that is great for the whole family is indoor rock climbing.
