Therapeutic Yoga for Osteoporosis 6-Week Series

January 8, 2020 @ 9:30 AM - 10:45 AM

|Recurring Event (See all)
Our Specialized Series occur every 6 weeks.

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.

This series will introduce the 12 recommended yoga poses medically proven to build bone density. A few yoga poses will be worked on each class to understand form and function. Once each student has modified the pose to work for them, class will start building on stamina and timing.

Marianne crafts her class for students’ specific health conditions, so class size is limited to 10 students.

Students have the ability to get up and down off the floor.
Some yoga experience necessary.

The instructor Marianne Meyers has been a C-IAYT (Certified Yoga Therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists) since 2016. In addition, she is a certified Body Balance Yoga Therapy instructor, a certified Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga instructor and a certified Yoga for Osteoporosis instructor. She specializes in teaching students with injuries, chronic health conditions and accident recovery.

Please note series policies:
• This is a 6-week specialized series
• Series are separate from class packages
• Make-ups are available upon talking to your instructor
