This gentle yoga class is designed to introduce students to the ways that yoga can help maintain bone health. Students will be taught the 12-minute daily yoga sequence which was studied by Dr. Loren Fishman and shown to build bone density, as reported in The New York Times. Dr. Fishman was a student of the yoga master BKS Iyengar and his work is partly based on his teachings. As a nationally certified Iyengar yoga teacher, Mary is qualified to teach the alignment principles which keep students safe and maximize the benefits of the poses. This class would also be an excellent choice for those looking for a gentle yoga class.
