Yoga for Bone Strength & Health with Diane Thompson

Yoga has been shown in peer-reviewed publications to reverse osteoporosis and osteopenia and in over 100,000 hours of use, has caused no fractures or serious injuries of any kind.
In this workshop attributed to Dr. Loren Fishman and Ellen Saltenstall, you will:
• experience and practice yoga poses that build new bone
• learn about the physiology of osteoporosis, effects of medications and what movements to avoid
• improve your balance and co-ordination to prevent falling

About the instructor: Diane Thompson, RYT 200 Diane is living proof of the effects of yoga on increasing her bone strength, bone quality and her balance.
