The National Osteoporosis Foundation estimates that more than 44 million people are at risk for, or have, osteoporosis and low bone mass. These conditions affect people of both genders, all ethnic backgrounds, ages, body types and lifestyles. Research is somewhat mixed as to exactly what type of exercise is best, but it generally is accepted that exercise and movement help build and maintain bone. However, certain movements such as forward and side bends as well as twists may put some people at risk for injury. Therefore, movement guidelines are important for skeletal health and safety.

In this program, you’ll learn:

  • Seated, floor and standing postures to elongate/strengthen the spine
  • Safe weight-bearing yoga poses, walking posture and balancing exercises to strengthen spine and hip
  • How to use props (physio-rollers, stretch-out straps, Pelvic Posture PillowTM to enhance practice
  • Poses to avoid or approach with caution
  • Definitions, epidemiology, pathology, risk factors and first signs of osteoporosis and how to read a bone density report

Previous yoga experience helpful but not necessary.
NOTE: Please bring a mat or blanket. Tuition includes a Pelvic Posture Pillow.
