Yoga for Building Bones

New research shows that in addition to yoga’s many other health benefits, it also improves bone density in the spine, hips and femur. In this class, we will strengthen our skeletons with seven standing poses, along with postures on all fours, seated and lying down. No prior yoga experience necessary, and class covers all the basics so that your yoga experience is comfortable, beneficial and therapeutic. You will not only build your bones, but you will build strength, flexibility, enhance immunity, calm the mind, and enliven and deepen the breath.
