Yoga for Building Bones (ONLINE)

Photo of the event-detail

New research shows that you can improve bone density significantly in the spine, hips and femur with simple but effective postures, when practiced with correct alignment. Laraine offers three variations for each posture while integrating therapeutic breathwork, meditation, balance work, and heart openers into the practice. We not only strengthen our bones and physical body, but we cultivate a sense of well-being by calming the mind, deepening the breath, and engaging in positive affirmations and a powerful meditative practice throughout the class. Having practiced yoga since she was 19 and taught for over 20 years, Laraine brings compassion, joy, and a depth of understanding to her teaching. No prior yoga experience is necessary.

"I just had a new bone density scan, and am pleased that I am no longer osteopenic. My bone density is now normal and above average for my age. I attribute this positive change in large part to the Yoga for Building Bones class I have been attending once a week. I also feel stronger."
