Yoga For Your Bones - LIVE via Zoom
December 3 (Thursday) at 11:00 am (GMT-08:00)
Rachael Resch, PT
Join physical therapist and Nia Black Belt, Rachael R. Resch, for this fun and unique class blending science, yoga and sacred anatomy. You'll learn how to gently and safely build bone, prevent and reverse osteopenia or osteoporosis, and avoid fractures.
Focus: Conscious alignment of bones.
Intent: Safely strengthen and stabilize your bones, your balance and your life.
Yoga For Your Bones Class Recordings: Each class will be recorded and available to watch for one week after the live-streaming class ends. The link will be available in the class listing in the calendar after the live class is finished.
Based on the research of Loren Fishman, MD, and Rachael's PT practice with Michael R. McClung, MD, at the Oregon Osteoporosis Center in Portland, as well as the work of Shirley Sahrmann, PT, and John Barnes, PT.
