Healthy bones help you move through the world with strength and confidence. Bones are our supporting structure, they hold us up and literally nurture and protect us. They provide not only structure to our bodies, but help us make life sustaining blood cells. They protect our fragile organs and allow us to move through space. They are also beautiful, unassuming and noble. Bones are amazing! BUT if bones aren’t stretched, moved and nourished they become brittle, less porous and prone to breaking easily. This is the key, you have to move and work to stay strong!
Yoga classes focused on bone health can help you in a variety of beneficial ways. Students who take up a consistent practice tell us they are able to do more things in a day, feel stronger and less achy.
This 6-session series invites you to experience these positive effects. This Healthy Bones series is excellent for people with osteoporosis and osteopenia. It is also appropriate for anyone interested in developing their bone health and healthy aging. You will learn to practice Iyengar Yoga in a safe context even though you are at home.
The program will be held live-online via Zoom. Shari will get to see you in your home setting and advise you on what to do. You will have time to ask questions. It is very interactive!
Each session is a beginner level Iyengar yoga class with specific focus. The series will include all of the 12 core poses that are part of Dr. Loren Fishman’s ongoing “Yoga and Osteoporosis Study”.
6 Session Series: Sundays June 21, June 28, July 5, July 12, July 19 and July 26 4 – 5:30 pm
