Building a Personal Yoga Practice to Combat Osteoporosis

Related program: Yoga for Osteoporosis

For all levels.

Discover safe ways to build and strengthen your bones, no matter your level of experience or physical limitations. Yoga therapist Terry Roth Schaff reviews the yoga poses from Loren Fishman’s medical study on yoga for osteoporosis, and teaches a second set of bone-building poses to add to your practice. Learn new poses to improve posture, balance, and coordination, and to strengthen bones in your wrists, arms, and hips. The program also teaches new ways to move to reduce your risk of falling and avoid compression fractures in your spine.

Return home with a nuanced and personalized yoga practice that gives you the most benefit for combating osteoporosis. This program can be enjoyed as a continuation of the Yoga for Osteoporosis weekend with Terry and Loren, or as a stand-alone program.
