TOLEDO, Ohio — Ohio has some of the highest obesity rates in the country, according to data and local doctors. During the winter those numbers don’t get better.
But there are many ways to keep the body moving and warmed up despite the cold weather. The winter solstice is on Wednesday and local yoga instructors suggest planning how to stay active now.
Margaret Penn, owner of the Yogaja Yoga Studio in west Toledo, said to be mindful of what our bodies need and not fall into hibernation.
