Yoga for Osteoporosis and Osteopenia: a Virtual Two Week Yoga + Nutrition Program
Do you suffer from osteoporosis or osteopenia?
Osteoporosis or Osteopenia occur when the creation of new bone does not keep up with the loss of old bone. This condition causes bones to become weak and brittle over time depending on the severity of the bone loss to the extent that even coughing or folding forward can cause a fracture.
Typically, there are no symptoms in the beginning stages of Osteoporosis or Osteopenia, but over time as bone losses worsen, you may experience symptoms such as a hunched or stooped posture when standing, back pain or discomfort, loss of height, and fragile bones that break easily. This is where yoga comes in!
A well-designed yoga program can help with proper posture which is crucial to prevent the heavy load of gravity from putting too much pressure on the vertebrae which are already vulnerable to load and stress.
This program will be specifically designed for those individuals who have Osteoporosis or Osteopenia so they will feel more comfortable participating in a yoga program. You will learn:
- proper sitting and standing postural positions
- modifications to help protect the spine
- poses to avoid or modify
- nutritional tips and guidelines on the best diet and nutrition for strong and healthy bones
What’s included in the program:
- daily emails and prompts
- 2 full length yoga videos
- printable PDFs with tips and advice
- a FB page for addressing questions and concerns
