AP Newsfeainres Writer Many people saturate themselves with n o s t r u m s thai arc touted as necessary lo body health, physica whereas the secret of well-being -- exercise ' believes ness. .- -- is at their fingertips. Thai's the word from Olpa Ley, long time exponent of exercises, who "passivity is a sick- "Exerctse can improve your posture and digestion and keep you stimulated -- no matter what your age and even if your body is in 'bad shape you can still make lots of correction by exercising," she insists. A lithe size JO, the Russian born widow of the laic pioneer space travel expert Willy Lc\ has been teaching exercise for 37 years.

Too much emphasis is placed on violent exercise -- the kind vou do vigorously and then for- ;cl about for awhile, she remarked. Exercise becomes a dirty word when one thinks one should do it. This is evident, she points out, in advertisements for diet pitls and self-exercise garments which empha- sise that "no exercise is necessary." Although Americans are sports-minded, they prefer watching others work out, she remarked. PLEASANT EXERCISE "Exercise should be pleasurable -- done quietly, slowly and joyfully. To music if it is possible. Stretch when you have the opportunity. Look at how much a cat enjoys stretching. Exercise should be done f'" pleasure, not mechanically. "Swimming can he done at any age. One should continue to use one's body as one grows older. You need not do ex-j orcEses at a specific hour. Do' one while you stand in line at a movie or while you are stopped for a t r a f f i c light. One of my pupils, 87. can bend down. touching her palms to the floor." she observed.
