It’s summertime! Celebrate by taking part in Back On Pointe’s Arabesque Weekend!
The arabesque is a classic ballet pose, with one leg raised behind the dancer, at heights that range from inches off the ground to straight up in the air. It is a test of balance and of both flexibility and strength. (Also, it’s gorgeous.)
So lift that leg up, find a cute position for your arms, and snap a picture of your arabesque. Tag it with #ArabesqueWeekend or submit it to Back On Pointe!
Low- and no-impact workouts are great for plus-sized people, people with joint problems, or people who simply can’t do high-impact workouts. This workout works your entire body without straining your joints!
"Traditional FA [Fat Acceptance] arguments have relied on the idea that the way to diffuse these hateful statements is to prove that fat isn’t necessarily unhealthy. But by doing so we’ve ceded the premise that health status is, in fact, grounds for hating or despising someone. And as long as the tiniest statistical correlation between fatness and whatever-disease exists, we’ve lost the argument, because we diffused the wrong bomb: we should have rejected the idea that it’s okay to hate people for being ‘unhealthy,’ period. "
Never considered that, but good points.
Looking for a snack after school was just made easy :)
