5/23 Intro to Yoga Therapy for Bone Health

May 23 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Workshop Overview

In this 2 hour workshop you will gain a greater understanding of how bones are built, how to understand a DEXA scan, and learn safe range of motion for someone with Osteoporosis. We will also be practicing the 12 yoga poses that Dr. Fishman has been studying to increase bone density.
Yoga challenges our balance, builds strength in the body, increases proprioception which aids in fall prevention. Yoga helps to reduce stress. All of these things are important when you have bone loss.
Come empower yourself! This is an all levels class and is most beneficial for someone new to the benefits of yoga for bone health but can also be a refresher workshop if you have taken a bone workshop from Susan in the past.
