If you are curious about doing yoga for your vital bones, this course is for you. 

Three lessons teach you why, what, and how to get started. 

Video instruction plus text and other resources are offered in this self-paced course to help you answer your questions about yoga for your vital bones. 

You'll learn:

  • The Why:  why yoga is uniquely beneficial for the health of our bones 
  • The What:  what is yoga and how to setup to do it at home
  • The How:  how to practice safely so you can maximize those benefits 

This course lays the foundation for your ongoing practice of yoga and how to personalize your approach to postures. Yoga helps you learn about yourself as you must take into account your own fitness level, experience with yoga, sense of body awareness, history of injuries, any previous fractures or myriad other conditions you may be dealing with.  

We all have to practice yoga mindfully - AND - if you've already fractured this is paramount.

AND - this course is intended to put all our minds at ease about how to practice safely and learn to reap all the benefits that yoga can offer us for our health. 
 

What students tell me when asked ...

What was the most helpful thing you learned from this course?

  • CM says...

    "Understanding that yoga can be done correctly and appropriately despite the current status of my spine and bones, and can benefit them."

  • DB says...

    "The most helpful thing was not being too afraid to practice, and to be mindful rather than wary of poses. You confirmed what I thought might be the way to go with my practice."

  • JK says...

    "The detailed cues about how to stand regally with collar bones open, ears aligned, pelvis tilted slightly and abs supporting. This is a default which is really great to keep safe and to get optimal results with stimulating bones."

"Your information, organization and videos were excellent." ~ SF

Why am I sharing this with you for FREE?

Because I don't want you to fear your bones.

The practice of yoga doesn't fit easily onto a one-page handout or brochure with bullet lists of poses to do or not to do. The teaching is a combination of what and how...along with the why, so you can make the best choices for yourself. I hope you'll take the time to go through this mini-course and learn how uniquely beneficial yoga is to your bones!
