Yoga for Osteoporosis and Osteopenia

Float SNJ is excited to welcome Karen Barkan as she presents her yoga practice specifically designed to improve bone density and promote health and well being, based on the research of Dr. Loren Fishman.

β€œ...the structural support of bone, follows the lines of force to which that bone is exposed. When bone cells get stimulated through being compressed or twisted or elongated, they produce more bone mass until that bone gets strong enough, to resist the pressure. At that point the pressure no longer distorts the bone…” β€œ...In osteoporosis, the bones bend more, so pressure is more effective in stimulating the cells to make bone. Yoga stimulates the bone with isometric contraction at almost every conceivable angle…” - Dr. Loren Fishman

Yoga also benefits people with osteoporosis by:

-Improving balance
- Improving muscular strength
-Improving range of motion and coordination,
- Lessening anxiety.
- And helps reduce the risk of falling.

Learn poses that strengthen bone density, improve health, and best of all, you can take what you learn with you and practice at home!
