Osteoporosis is a silent disease that weakens bones, often resulting in fractures. Recent studies indicate that Yoga, practiced the right way, can build bone mass and prevent fractures without undesirable side effects. You’ll learn a safe and enjoyable practice to improve bone and muscle strength, posture, and balance.
This workshop provides an overview of osteoporosis: – Definition, prevalence, testing, risk factors, remediating factors, physiology – Consequences: fractures, falls, bone health – How yoga can counteract weakening bones without undesirable side effects. – Do’s and Don’ts: movements which are safe and movements to be avoided.
We guide you through carefully selected yoga poses to build muscle and bone, improve posture, balance, and overall strength as recommended by Dr. Lauren Fishman.
For men and women of all ages; appropriate for those who’ve never done yoga, experienced students, and yoga teachers.
