      Thank you Eiddwen for your visit and for the encouraging comments. I'm glad to know that you found it useful.

      In the beginning please don't attempt to do all the exercises at a stretch, if you have some health problems. Do it slowly whatever you can, and gradually you will be able to do the full steps.

      Wish you the best.

      This hub is on a subject that i knew nothing about and I think this added to the interest.

      I can't do all of the excercises due to two operations on my back but I may try some whether just doing one or four or six I don't know if that would be beneficialThis is one of the reasons that I love HP is that there is so much variety in the hubs.

      Since I've joined I feel as if I may only be on the first few rungs of the ladder of learning.

      Thank you so much for sharing this informative hub.

      Take care lex123.
