Bone loss is all too common after age 50, but we don’t have to become helpless victims. Research has shown that consistently practicing particular yoga poses can increase bone density, curb bone loss, and in some cases reverse it.
In this workshop you will learn:
- Dr. Loren Fishman’s second series of 12 bone strengthening poses
- Adaptations of the poses to fit your particular needs and conditions
- A dynamic warmup and balance sequence
- Essentials for keeping you safe and successful both on and off the mat
Thousands of participants in a current study have enjoyed significant benefits from the first series, 80% of whom have increased their bone density scores. There is every reason to believe that this new series will offer similar, powerful results. Whether you want to begin your journey with this series, alternate between this and the first series or expand your practice to include some of each, come join us. Come to prevent bone loss. Stay to improve balance, posture, range of motion and a host of yoga’s other far-reaching benefits. Leave with a loaded toolkit to support you on your path. All are welcome.
