Did you know that after age 50 we lose 1% of our bone mass per year and by 35 we’ve built all the bone we’ll ever have?
Rather than retreat or be discouraged come find out how practicing particular yoga poses that focus on bone strength and balance can be potent for fortifying bone and slowing down or preventing its decline.
What you will learn:
  1. A series of poses that have been shown to improve bone density in a current study
  2. How to modify them to receive maximum benefit
  3. How to set up a home practice so you’ll be consistent and stay with it
  4. How to incorporate and apply what you learn into your daily activities
  5. Dynamic balance sequences to improve your balance and reduce your risk of falling

This workshop will be primarily action oriented, but we will save some time to discuss other ways to feed our bones and care for them. You will also be informed about a study based on these poses and find out how to participate, enabling you to more accurately monitor your progress and add your input to this important body of work. Open to everyone!
