Yoga for Strong Bones Part 1 – Self-Paced
with Satya Greenstone, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT
Discover how Yoga asana (posture) can help to build and maintain strong bones.
A 10-year study by Dr. Loren Fishman demonstrated an increase in bone mineral density and improved bone quality with the regular practice of 12 Yoga poses. Yoga asana also improves your balance, posture, strength, range of motion, and coordination, greatly reducing the risk of fracture.

Satya presented the information very clearly and thoroughly. I always understood what she was saying and where she was going. I enjoyed doing all the asanas and appreciated that there were relaxation and recovery periods so I did not experience any stiffness. I will definitely take more workshops with Satya. — Past Program Participant
