As we age, our bones become more brittle and we lose muscle. But we can slow that down and even reverse some of those effects, with yoga. Join Kelli to learn how to use yoga postures to strengthen your bones, build muscle, and improve posture and balance. We will be specifically using concepts and poses researched by Loren Fishman, MD. This research has been published in books, online and in various news outlets. Kelli attended training with Dr. Fishman last summer and is eager to share her knowledge with our community.
During this workshop, we will discuss:
The definitions and effects of osteoporosis and frailty syndrome.
Briefly examine the science behind how yoga acts as preventative medicine.
Learn two sequences of yoga postures you can do at home to build bone and muscle strength.
Learn how to adapt postures in any class to build bone and muscle strength.
This workshop is perfect for anyone 50+ years and anyone is concerned about having to go on medication to prevent osteoporosis. If you ever worry about falling and breaking a bone as you age or are looking to maintain your mobility as long as possible, this workshop is perfect for you.
