Are you concerned about the quality of your bones or the potential of fractures? Recent research by Dr. Loren Fishman using Yoga to treat Osteoporosis and Osteopenia has shown promising results in increasing bone density. Come learn how to use yoga specifically to build bone strength and improve balancing skills, helping you reduce your risk of falling. Get the benefits of weight-bearing exercise without the stress on your joints of high-impact activities like running.
For those of you that want to get the benefits of doing Yoga for Osteoporosis but find it difficult to get down and up from the floor, this class will be done mostly seated in chairs, but with some standing poses. It will be a more gentle version of my ongoing Yoga for Osteoporosis classes. Everything is optional, and modifications will be provided for those who need them. We will also go over basic alignment for healthy, pain-free posture in sitting, standing and bending.
