Yoga for Bone Health  

Yoga for Bone Health is designed specifically for older adults who are looking to gain strength, flexibility, and balance to improve overall range of motion. It is a targeted practice developed by Dr. Loren Fishman and is aimed at maintaining a healthy skeleton. Recent studies have shown that specific yoga postures may aid in reversing bone loss, if practiced frequently and consistently. In this class we will focus on strengthening the spine and hips, as these are the fracture risk areas. Additionally, we will learn how to stretch safely, calm the nervous system, and breathe in the poses. Breath work will be incorporated in each session to ensure a positive effect on the nervous system and provide an integrative experience. Open to all levels; please note, this is not a chair yoga class, but we will use blocks, walls, and chairs to create proper alignment. Please bring a yoga mat, two blocks, and a blanket.
