Ananda Yoga® for Bone Strength

Not scheduled at this time.

with Maitri Jones

Over 40 million people in the U.S. have osteoporosis or low bone mass. Many people don't realize they have fragile bones until they suffer a fracture. Learn how to strengthen your bones and muscles and feel empowered.

April 2019 course is for Nurses only. During this weekend program, you will:

  • Practice Ananda Yoga® postures tailored to prevent, halt, or reverse the process of bone loss
  • Learn what movements to avoid or modify if you have osteoporosis or osteopenia
  • Use the power of focused awareness and affirmation in the poses to stimulate bone growth
  • Feel empowered physically, and learn a meditation technique to uplift your spirit and decrease stress and anxiety
  • Learn an Ananda Yoga® routine you can practice at home to keep moving toward dynamic health and inspiration.

This program will be lead by Maitri Jones.  You can read Maitri's blog about Ananda Yoga for Tall Posture and Bone Strength

What our guests say:

The scope and content of Yoga for Stronger Bones  was excellent. The instruction was clear, concise and easy to assimilate. The pacing was great with a nice blend of lecture, discussion and practice

. I came away feeling empowered to keep my bones healthy and confident in assisting my students to do the same throughout their practice.   - K.R., Gold River, CA

I'm so grateful that you are able to intuitively and wisely help all of us who attended Yoga for Stronger Bones. Your kindness, compassionate heart, and especially your exceptional expertise makes you an excellent channel to help us with our particular needs. I got so much information and tools that I can incorporate right away, which will help me to diminish joint pain, improve my posture, improve bone health, and so much more. I'm amazed with the amount of information you're able to provide in just a weekend. Your excellent organization skills make it fun, interesting, and digestible to the brain without feeling overwhelmed. 
       This is the second class I've taken with you, and you have surpassed my expectations again--I'll keep watching the Expanding Light calendar for any other classes you offer. Lastly, Thanks so much for the yoga routine in the flash drive and hard copy you provided us with. I'll be practicing it daily.  - B.S., Winnemucca, NV

I found the workshop to be so beneficial for myself and for my profession. I got so much more than learning about osteoporosis and bone health. The weekend turned into a healing experience for me. Maitri, you spoke with such a gentle and loving spirit. I slept the best I have in a long time and felt so relaxed as I entered back into my life. -L.C., Rancho Cordova, CA
