6/22 Fine Tune Your Poses for Bone Strength

June 22 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Workshop Overview

In this workshop we will be practicing all of the Dr. Loren Fishman poses (36) in his protocol using yoga for bone strength.
 
On 6/15 we will be practicing the first series and half of the second series poses.
On 6/22 we will do the remaining second series as well as the third series.
 
Yoga has been shown to be an effective way to increase bone density. It is good for your balance and helps to lower stress levels all of which are important for someone with bone loss. We will be looking closely at alignment on each pose so that we can practice safely and effectively.
