Yoga for Osteoporosis

Saturday, May 14 | 10:00 AM-12:00 PMyoga supta

Yes, yoga is great for bone health, too! Beginners are most welcome to this gentle two-hour workshop designed to build healthy bones and prevent osteoporosis. Adaptations of each pose will be demonstrated, from easy to full pose; participants may go at their own pace and comfort level.

Instructor Beverlee Burke is excited to bring this workshop to Creative Therapeutics. One of her teachers, Loren Fishman, MD, studies the link between yoga and bone health. Dr. Fishman contends that yoga’s blend of weight-bearing poses and gentle stretching makes for an ideal combination to fight osteopenia, osteoporosis, and osteoarthritis. (Check out Dr. Fishman’s books on amazon). All ages and ability levels are welcome to this workshop. It’s never too early to take care of your bones!
