Yoga for Bone Health (6-week series in-studio)

Dates: Saturdays, Oct 16, 23, Nov 6, 13, 20 & Dec 4
Time: 1:30 - 2:45 pm
Price: $130

Yoga for Bone Health is a targeted practice developed by Dr. Loren Fishman, M.D. designed to help maintain a healthy skeleton, strengthen posture, and improve balance. In this series you will be guided through all three variations of eleven poses and discover which variation is safe but effective for you at this time. The twelfth pose is savasana. The poses can be adapted for all levels of physical ability. Study results show that practicing this regimen can reverse osteoporotic bone loss.

To do our part to limit transmission of COVID and keep you safer, all students attending in-studio must be fully vaccinated by October 1, 2021. For more information on the policy see Studio News. Class size is limited to 5 students and masks required until you are settled on your mat.

Yoga Instructors can earn 7.5 CE hours.

Taught by Nancy Sessoms, E-RYT 500, Certified in Dr. Fishman's Method for Osteoporosis.
