Yoga for Osteoporosis Workshop
Hosted by Debi Robinson, RYT, Yoga Therapy Rx Instructor
Saturday, April 8th, 1:00pm
This workshop will focus on yoga for those with osteoporosis or osteopenia using a specific yoga practice proven to strengthen normal and weakened bones. We will focus on the underlying anatomy, physiology, and processes by which yoga works and learn how to do the 12 postures that have been demonstrated to raise spine bone mineral density 9% and femoral bone density by 6% in a 10-year 741-subject study. We will also focus on how to improve your balance, posture and agility giving you the confidence, power and strength to age healthy and happily.
This workshop will be part discussion and part asana (please arrive in easy to move in clothing). Beginners are welcome! Pose adaptations will be suggested according to individual needs.
Debi Robinson has a Yoga for Osteoporosis certification from Dr Loren Fishman and Ellen Saltonstall who are both leaders in this field and are involved in an ongoing study of the beneficial effects of yoga for those with osteoporosis or osteopenia.
