Yoga and Osteoporosis
Saturday, June 3, with Shari Stein
“I always say that my religion is kindness, because kindness is in our bones.” His Holiness, the Dalai Lama
Osteopenia and osteoporosis are conditions in which – during the natural process of aging – bones tend to become more porous and susceptible to fracture. Exciting new research shows that yoga is a very effective tool for preventing and managing these conditions. Participants will be guided through practices that encourage grounding and weight bearing, as well as exercises and poses that facilitate balance, stability, range of movement and awareness. Written handouts, summarizing relevant science, will be provided.
