Yoga for Strong Bones
"Our skeleton has to last a lifetime," says Miriam Nelson, PhD, author of Strong Women, Strong Bones. Yet over 2 million fragility fractures occur each year in the United States.


Three key factors make for a healthy skeleton and overall well-being: 1) bone strength; 2) mental status; 3) and balance. Yoga practice helps with all these factors in ways that are safe and enjoyable.

It's never too late, or too early, to start taking care of your bones. In this workshop you will learn a variety of exercises, including those used successfully in a study to reverse bone loss. "Aging processes are inexorable," says Loren Fishman, MD, one of the study's authors. "It makes sense to initiate contrary processes that are stronger."

This workshop is a benefit for Green Sangha's programs of awakened action
Cost: $45
Members: $35 (to join or renew, go to www.greensangha.org/donate)

About the instructor:
Stuart Moody, M.A., began his yoga studies in high school and became a teacher of meditation on a semester off from college. His students have included schoolchildren and their parents, prison inmates and staff, college students and professors, and retirees. He is certified in Ananda Yoga and Education Through Movement, and recently completed Somatic Yoga Professional Training.

Stuart is board president of Green Sangha. This summer he will be teaching mindfulness skills to youth in detention in Contra Costa County. During the school year he works as Trainer for the Mindful Ambassadors program at the University of Arizona.

Students comment:
"I really benefited from your last class, and want you to know that I feel confident in my ability to repeat those Yoga techniques at home . . . . You have been a wonderful teacher and taught me SO much."
"This session was deeply relaxing, but not just in a physical way.  We all need to dissipate our tensions, and this is the best way I know of. One feels many pounds lighter on the way out, compared to the way in, having shed all these heavy tensions. And one is more likely to be smiling, internally and externally. The pressures and stresses of life shorten that life, but sessions like this extend it. And give it a better quality."
"Thank you so much for your generous offering of somatic yoga instruction in the spring. I learned so much that has helped me breathe slower and calmer throughout the day."
"I feel more relaxed now than I have in years."
