“Osteoporosis is one of the most widespread chronic conditions in the Western hemisphere, and it’s hard to exaggerate its health effects. Osteoporosis affects 44 million Americans. That’s more than half of everyone over the age of 50. It is 50 percent of all women of whatever age and 25 percent of all men. It affects over 200 million people worldwide.”
~Dr. Loren Fishman
Yoga & Movement for Strong Bones Series- $120
This on-going 6-week series via Zoom is designed to help those living with a bone loss diagnosis or those wishing to maintain their bone health improve their posture, balance, range of motion, strength, mobility, and most importantly bone density. Inspired by the Dr. Loren Fishman Method, the yoga poses are alignment-based and weight-bearing to help increase bone density. The use of resistance bands is incorporated into some of the classes as an additional way to build strength and increase bone density. The practice emphasizes safety and proper alignment. Each session ends with a restorative pose to leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. If you are not sure if the series is right for you, email: firstname.lastname@example.org and you can try out the first class of any series for $20 as a trial to see if the class is right for you.
