These joint-freeing exercises are great to do when you're short on time. You can do them any time, anywhere, no yoga mat or specific clothes required. They will get the energy moving and keep all your joints healthy and open. Joints connect our muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia, so keeping them supple and healthy enables us to stay physically fit and more relaxed. In short, healthy joints are the key to longevity. Practice these joint-freeing exercises on a regular basis; they'll have a positive impact on your health in the long term. If you enjoyed this, check out Esther's short 'Qigong arm swing' class.
