Yoga Keeps Us Forever Young

April 26, 2014 2 min read

dsc_0013-1 Who says flexibility decreases with age? Not 87 year old yoga enthusiast & instructor Bette Calman. She is probably more flexible & energetic than half of the people reading this post. According to her, yoga can keep you feeling young forever.   Bette_Calman2 Bette began her yoga journey when she saw a male yogi standing on his head and immediately she wanted to do the same! When she tried it, she was amazed at how much energy it had given her throughout her body. She kept with the practice after noticing how great she felt after each and every class she attended. She ended up loving yoga so much that she became an instructor and even taught up to 11 classes per week! Amazing & inspirational, right? na_wk12_blog_mothersday Bette says that the secret to aging is to "keep on keeping on" and to not give up because when you do, it then becomes an issue. She also states that she can do more now than she could 50 years ago. The body is an amazing machine and how old we are shouldn't affect how we feel! As we get older, we find ourselves complaining more and more about the things that our bodies cannot do instead of working on it and making our bodies with age by practice. Lifestyle4 So how exactly does yoga keeps us feeling young as we age? Here are a few ways:
  • Increased flexibility
  • Boosts immunity
  • Eases headaches
  • Improves sex drive
  • Improves self image
  • Head to toe toning
  • Improves sleep
  • Improves mood
  • De-stresses & calms
  • Gets rid of aches & stiff joints and muscles.
  • Increases energy

You are never too old to reach your health & fitness goals!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
