Avian Athletics

Improve your physical fitness with exercises that are avian inspired.

Avian AthleticsA bird in flight shows a grace and beauty many wish they could emulate. Gliding through the air with wings outstretched, a flying bird seems to embody strength and power. Such motion often inspires similar movements in exercising, from stretches and weight-lifting maneuvers to popular yoga poses.

Even pet birds can inspire new movement in their owners. Tilt your head to the side like your bird, or lift and gently flap your arms as if you were stretching your wings. Ready for more ideas on how to take exercise inspiration from your feathered friend? Read on!
