Yoga for Bone Health Workshop

This specialty workshop is designed to teach you yoga poses to strengthen your bones and slow down the natural age-related changes to the spinal joints. The research-based Fishman Method of yoga for osteoporosis will help you improve balance, posture, strength, flexibility and coordination. Practicing the poses should, over time, improve your bone density and help you avoid rounding of the upper spine also known as hyperkyphosis.

We will begin with a discussion about the anatomy of the spine, osteoporosis and how yoga can help remodel bone and create an efficient spinal alignment. We will practice beginner, intermediate and/or classical versions of each pose to find the most effective ones for you. You will learn attention to the breath to help deepen the practice. Props will be used as needed to build intensity in each pose. The more muscles we recruit the better we stimulate bone growth. You will leave feeling empowered, stronger and ready to take on your day!
