Yoga for Healthy Bones

with Regina Burgio

Sunday, September 17, 2017

Recent studies have shown that yoga is one of the safest preventative measures and treatments for low bone mass, a condition that affects half of everyone over the age of 50. If you have osteopenia, osteoporosis or are just interested in strengthening your bones, then this yoga workshop is for you.

Learn safe poses and exercises that improve posture, balance, and strength as well as movements that are contraindicated. Breath work and relaxation will also be incorporated. Leave feeling relaxed, empowered and standing taller!

This workshop is also ideal for anyone who is feeling the negative effects of technology on their body and mind. Hunching over mobile devices and office desks can lead to a host of muscular and spinal issues.

All levels and ages welcome. Appropriate for those new to yoga or for anyone who wants to learn ways to adapt their current practice. Chairs and props will be available.

As always, please consult your doctor before beginning any exercise program.
