Yoga Therapy Training: Seniors and Bone Strength
Formerly: Seniors and Osteoporosis

Next: Jun 11 – 14, 2017

Yoga teachers and yoga therapists can provide a much-needed service by learning to help older people and those with bone strength issues.

Our increasing population of seniors is looking for ways to maintain health and age gracefully. For many, the aging process involves loss of muscular strength, decreased flexibility, and increased risk for falls. 

Yoga teachers and yoga therapists have an opportunity to provide a much-needed service by learning to help older people:

  1. Practice yoga safely
  2. Use yoga practice to optimize bone strength
  3. To maintain muscle strength and flexibility

In this course, you will learn:

  1. How to teach yoga gently and safely to help seniors maintain a full and active life
  2. How to help people build strength, flexibility, and balance
  3. How to enhance bone density for the otherwise healthy yoga practitioner and for those with low bone density.
  4. How to modify asanas for those with osteoporosis, including those who already experience postural and structural changes.
