Yoga For Osteoporosis
August 19, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Have you been diagnosed with osteoporosis or osteopenia? Are you worried about developing this condition based on family history or personal situation? This workshop addresses these concerns in an immediate and practical way.
You will learn a progression of 12 asanas (yoga poses) based on the sequence used in Dr. Loren Fishman’s groundbreaking, 10-year study that demonstrated yoga is an effective treatment for osteoporosis. Asana variations are given for osteoporosis, osteopenia, and prevention. A study guide will be provided to support your yoga practice at home.
A minimum of 3 months of yoga experience is recommended for participants. You must also be able to get down and up off the floor to take this workshop.
The workshop is offered by Sarah Harvey, a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher who has over 14 years of experience teaching yoga to older students.
