About the Event
There are over 10 million people in the US with osteoporosis, and studies suggest you can help to counteract the effects of bone loss and osteoporosis through the practice of YOGA.
But how do you know if your yoga practice is safe for your bones?
The Safety Zone is the place where the body’s framework operates as optimally as possible and with much awareness.
Without awareness, strength and balance, this silent disease will cause bones to become more porous and lose structural integrity.
In this workshop, you will learn how bones remodel. You will locate your individual Safety Zone. You will then explore a yoga flow incorporating some well-known yoga postures; and how they relate to creating a safe practice for osteoporosis.
This 2.5 hour workshop is guided by Jennifer Herndon, certifed yoga teacher and physical therapy assistant.
