Yoga for Osteoporosis
While you may know that a regular yoga practice improves flexibility and balance, decreasing the risk of falls, you may not know that there have been studies showing that certain yoga poses can also possibly slow down losses in bone density.
Yoga is a simple impact-free way of applying gentle force to the bones through muscular action. It is this gentle force, over time, that has shown some promise for those with osteoporosis.
This workshop will teach the sequence developed by Dr. Loren Fishman, a physician and yoga teacher who has researched the safe application of yoga for osteoporosis.
Selected yoga poses will be taught in a gentle and supported way. Handouts outlining the sequence will be provided.

Roll and Relax ~ Once Monthly
In this class we will use therapy balls to soothe the nervous system and relieve achy muscles.
Using therapy balls to massage the body helps to relieve pain and mobilize “stuck” areas of your body, while also creating mental and physiological down-regulation and increasing your sense of your body and its positioning in space.
The goal of these once monthly classes will be to create a sense of calm and relaxation. This will be a more restorative rolling practice.
Time: 5:30 – 6:45PM
Living Simply With The Seasons ~ Yoga and Self-Care with Sona Buchanan
Time: 1:00 – 4:30PM
Yoga Nidra ~ Once Monthly
Yoga Nidra is “yogic sleep”. Yoga Nidra is a paradigm shift that allows us to drop beneath the mental and emotional activity of the mind to a state of deep consciousness that promotes extreme relaxation by using guided words and imagery all while in a deeply relaxing posture. This offers a space to explore what you need in the moment, as well as an opportunity to release long-held emotions just by being guided. Nothing to do, nothing to think, just allowing yourself to rest while listening.
Time: 7:00 – 8:00PM
Time: 7:30 – 8:30PM

Yin Yoga ~ Once Monthly
Yin yoga is a practice of long held postures in stillness either seated or laying on the ground. Yin places gentle stress on the connective tissue to stimulate cells to repair, rebuild and to help move fluid and energy through the tissues. We utilize the breath to calm the nervous system and mindfulness to connect with sensations that arise in our bodies and mind. Yin yoga combines Hatha yoga, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Mindfulness to form a beautiful quiet practice. All levels welcome.
Time: 5:30 – 6:45PM
BeLOVE ~ An Afternoon of Yoga, Sound and Books
Join us in welcoming local author and artist, Jackie Zinni, as she shares with us her new book, LOVE. Accompanying her with the harmonic, vibrational sounds of Himalayan singing bowls will be Soulfire Sound Therapy, and our very own Family Yoga teacher Christine Hills will guide us in a heart-opening and balancing – but mostly just pure fun! – yoga practice. This interactive class allows families to explore yoga, music, and love of books together in shared space. We invite you to join in community to deepen your awareness and connection of the LOVE we have both within us and surrounding us!
About the book: LOVE opens little ones to the power of Love and its connection to all things through simple phrases and rainbow watercolors. A great guide for adults to introduce an experience of meditation to children that helps develop more heart awareness through feelings. The illustrations and questions allow the readers to remember that Love always was, is, and will be.
LOVE is a book for everyone: that plants new seeds of awareness and the beauty of Love.
Open to families of all ages & stages.
Time: 2:30PM – 4:30PM
