Building Bones Yoga and Osteoporosis This lecture and yoga class series is specifically designed for people with low bone mineral density for education and safe practice of yoga based exercise to prevent compression fractures and improve bone minderal density.

This class will teach you how to use yoga poses to strengthen posture and improve balance appropriate for people with osteoporosis.  Safe yoga practice can prevent the formation of compression fractures of the spine and hip fractures brought on by the result of weakened bones placed under unnecessary stress with non optimal yoga poses.  Class lecture and discussion includes a visual powerpoint for the education of osteoporosis physiology, structural anatomy, and progression.  The course also teaches movements to avoid in both your daily life and while exercising that can place you at risk of osteoporosis related fractures.  Ultimately each student will leave the course empowered with the knowledge needed to improve and maintain healthy bones through yoga based exercise.
