Photos: Working Off the Holidays

Locals work off the holiday pounds under the instructor Ted McDonald in an all level yoga class at 5 Point Yoga on Tuesday. 

It’s the beginning of the New Year and with that comes a desire for some to get in the best shape possible. All the decadent foods and calorie-laden cocktails tempting even the strongest of wills are hopefully behind us. It’s time to get your game on, get moving and shake off the holiday winter blues.

Exercise has been proven to lift the spirits, sending endorphins into our sleepy minds, waking our sluggish, overfed bodies. The warm winter days in Malibu make it easier to get out the door and hit one of the many fitness or yoga studios or gyms in our community.

With a diverse range of activities such as Pilates, hot vinyasa yoga, ariel yoga, tai chi, weight training, ballet, kick boxing, tap dancing, boot camps and meditative movement, there’s a workout for everyone!
