Wunda Chair Benefits

P/oP Wunda Chair Benefits

One may assume that the Wunda chair got its name because it works wonders.

At P/oP we believe that it does!

 The Wunda chair is often used for simple strength and balance exercises or for a medium to advanced range workout. 

** Enjoy these benefits from a Wunda Chair routine:

Stretching on the Wunda chair helps increase your range of motion, improve your flexibility and decrease tension in your whole body.

Wunda chair exercises using the feet help strengthen the legs and ankles while also working your core.

The Wunda chair can help you build strength in your arms and chest.

Specific moves on the Wunda chair offer an intense, challenging workout for your core abdominal area.

 

A Wunda chair class is a great addition to your exercise routine.

Wolf Mountain Sanctuary

Maria and family recently visited Wolf Mountain Sanctuary. 

It is a sanctuary for rescued wolves located in Palmdale, and is primarily dedicated to saving the threatened species while lending a helping hand to at-risk local youth. It is also one of the few wolf sanctuaries that hosts interactive wolf educational tours.

Everyone learned about the wolves, about their life in the wild and most importantly, why save the wolf?

A wolf is so noble, so beautiful.

The wolves, as well as other endangered species, are ecological indicators.  It is by studying these species and learning how to preserve them that we learn the main factors affecting our environment.

Visit the organization's website to learn more.

Yes, you get to actually touch a wolf and could most likely get kissed by a wolf … if you want to!!

Celebrating Spring Holiday Traditions

Season to celebrate Easter and Passover.

Both of these holidays bring an emphasis of nature, hope and history.

The renewal of nature that comes with spring amplifies the promise of redemption intertwined in the historical events being commemorated.

Passover commemorates events leading to the liberation of the children of Israel and is celebrated for seven to eight days. 

Easter, a festival in the Christian calendar, celebrates the events leading to and the resurrection of Jesus and is celebrated over a week which is known as the 'Holy Week.'

We can always admire the varying Easter and Passover traditions that are held around the world and here in our community. 

Whether you remember having ham or lamb, or as a kid you hunted eggs, had a chocolate bunny, or smashed dishes to indicate a fresh start during Passover, traditions are meaningful for how uniting and celebratory they are every spring. 

Join us in celebrating the tradition of sharing meals with family & friends.

Enjoy  one of our favorite traditional recipes.

Roasted Asparagus with Lemon and Olive Oil

  • 3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

  • Salt & fresh ground Pepper

  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

  • 1 tsp. grated lemon zest

Preheat oven to 450.

In a baking dish lined with parchment paper, drizzle the asparagus with half of the olive oil and season with salt & pepper.
