5/30 Yoga Therapy for Bone Strength

May 30 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Workshop Overview

In this 2 hour workshop we will be diving into the poses Dr. Fishman is studying to increase bone strength. We will be practicing the poses in ways to help bring awareness to the muscles and alignment for each pose. We will be exploring some of the poses in the first, second and third series.
Come clear up questions you might have about the poses, learn variations of the pose that work best for your body, and leave the workshop with the tools for a more effective practice. This workshop is suitable for all levels but a familiarity with the poses will be helpful.
