Are you concerned about the loss of bone density?
Do you know how to safely move through a yoga class with Osteopenia /Osteoporosis?
This workshop is designed for those dealing with Osteopenia, Osteoporosis and anyone wishing to prevent bone loss and improve strength and balance.
We will be looking at Dr. Loren Fishman’s 10 year study published in 2015 that found that participants (some of who had Osteopenia or Osteoporosis) who engaged in a sequence of 12 Yoga Poses showed an increase in bone density in femurs and spine.
The benefits of these 12 poses not only help to improve bone density but also help with better balance and coordination to protect against falls.
We will also discuss how to move wisely through yoga poses if you have Osteoporosis.
No yoga experience necessary. All levels welcome. Please bring a yoga mat and dress comfortably.
2.5 hours CEU available for yoga teachers.
