Tik-Tok Fitness Livestreaming
In order to let some members of Lanjingling whostay at home have more sports choices, beYoureyeS invited well-known fitnesstrainer Aiden to design well-rounded fitness lessons for Lanjingling members.
In the afternoon of every weekend from May 10 toMay 31, Aiden and her assistant coaches brought 4 livestream fitness lessons,during which Lanjingling acquired the ability of Cat-stretching, correctposture standing, plank, standard push-ups.
This series of postures are specially designed byCoach Aiden with her knowledge and experience in fitness, focusing on thedevelopment of muscle tissues on the body. Her detailed instructive approach ofteaching was based on her knowledge of the personal characteristics and habits ofthe participant. Coach Aiden also classified each posture in terms of their difficultylevels, allowing relatively weak participants to improve and develop in a stepwisemanner.
Hopefully Lanjingling will further pursue specialistfitness trainings outside of running, to raise cardiovascular capacity, adjust bodilymanners, and be healthy and joyful.
Yoga Reading Sessions
In the beginning of February, beYoureyeS online Yoga Reading Sessions were launched. Yoga instructor Karen decided to share the writtenYoga masterpiece Yoga-Stra on Himalayas —— an online audiobook platform,after considering the benefits of such audiobooks and the physical constraintsunder coronavirus lockdown.
