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.
