Recent studies have highlighted both the value of yoga to fortify our bones and the need for precautions to prevent bone damage. Come join this 4-week series and dive more deeply into how to both strengthen and protect your bones. Each week we’ll build on the previous one, revisiting and reinforcing what needs attention and exploring new territory to keep you engaged and growing stronger. Class size will be limited to 12 to insure individual attention.
In this series of classes you’ll learn:
– Particular poses that have been shown to improve bone density and how to do them to get the most benefit.
– Which poses to avoid or modify that increase the potential to fracture weak bones.
– How to adapt sequences such as Sun Salutations to fit your body’s architecture and the recommended guidelines for keeping your bones safe.
– Mobility/stability practices to keep you agile and minimize your risk of falling.
Bring your body, your questions and concerns and get the support you need to feel more empowered to take care of the life of your bones.
