Yoshi video log December 6th 2017

My exercise class named as " slimming down pelvis exercise " which started in 2008 successfully completed its predetermined contract term this week. Because of an agreement between an operating company of this exercise class and a sponsoring local governmental body, contract term for this course was predetermined as 10 years at the time of inception of this initiative. With the help and support of many people such as class participants, operating staff members, somehow I was able to complete the contract term of 10 years. So, I'm a bit relieved and thankful right now. Thank you very much everyone !

corrective exercise for pelvic region        '' Reggaeton ''

i have come to know the presence of a dance workout named
'' Reggaeton '' for the first time today from Miki-chan
as far as i watch the video, the biggest characteristic of reggaeton workout looks to be '' contraction & release '' of spine
especially the chest & pelvis portions are emphasized 
in that sense, maybe it resembles Zumba workout a bit, i guess
i think this is good workout for toning belly
and correction of distorted posture in lumbo-pelvic-hip complex

本日 Reggaeton(レゲトン)というダンスエクササイズの存在を初めて知った
映像を見る限り、レゲトンの最大の特徴は脊椎の動き (コントラクション&リリース)
にあるようだ   特に胸部と骨盤周辺の動きが多用されている
