Calisthenics improves your flexibility and reduces stiffness. It eases joint pain throughout your body and strengthens bones and muscles. Your range of motion will improve and you will have an easier time moving your shoulders, arms and back. Calisthenics reduces stress. It can be very enjoyable to have a few hour each week to forget all your troubles as you dance your cares away! It helps to diminish depression and lift your spirits – it gives you “me” time !
