Osteoporosis can become a serious issue for us as we age. How does it work and what are our options? A specific practice of yoga for osteoporosis has been scientifically proven to improve bone density through the work and research of Dr. Loren Fishman.

In this workshop, we will discuss osteoporosis, various treatments, different approaches, and a basic introduction to a few yoga poses and how to work with them. Some yoga experience is required for this workshop.
