YOGA THERAPY For Bone & Joint Health with Susan Desmarais
6 Wednesday, 5:15-6:45pm, January 29 - March 4 ~ As we age, our bones and joints begin to deteriorate with wear & tear. Whether one has osteoporosis or arthritis, yoga presents positive 'side effects' for these conditions, including: improved posture, directly addressing spinal fractures; balance, and gait. Yoga practice not only enhances circulation, coordination, range of motion, and strength, but also reduces pain, improves function, and brings about positive mental states. Yoga has been documented to reduce the risk of falling, as well - the main cause of osteoporotic fractures. Join Susan in this 6-week series of explorations in joint and bone strength, stability and mobility. Each session will build upon the others, as skills are developed and expanded upon. $165 cash or check payable to TAC - preregistration is required by January 22nd for this progressive series - to register, contact Susan at 671-913-0531 or via email
