Yoga for Strong Bones Part 2 – Online
with Satya Greenstone, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT
August 12 - 13, 2023
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 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.
Yoga for Strong Bones Part 2 is a 2-day online workshop focusing on incorporating variety and challenge into your Yoga practice to help build and maintain strong bones. This series is open to anyone who has completed Yoga for Strong Healthy Bones Part 1 or its equivalent. The Part 2 workshop will include additional poses for building strong, healthy bones. These poses will add variety and challenge to your daily practice. Full instruction will be offered on how to select and sequence poses in your personal daily practice. Guidelines will be given for maintaining a balanced, safe practice that meets your individual needs and goals. The group support and practice will refresh, invigorate, and inspire your continued practice of Yoga for strong bones.
