About the event

An osteopenia or osteoporosis diagnosis can be overwhelming: you may have received vague or confusing advice about what activities and movements are safe, and are worried about safeguarding your independence and health.

Developing a yoga and strength training routine can help to improve bone density and posture, develop better balance, and build confidence to allow you to continue to enjoy the activities you love.

Improving bone density requires the right stimulus, in the right dose, consistently over time. If you're wondering how to create an effective and safe routine that will provide the most bone building benefits, this seminar is for you!

Join Kaari Osteoporosis Director Michaela Smith and Osteoporosis Strength & Conditioning Specialist Ken Rhodes to learn :

  • What constitutes a safe strength training routine after diagnosis
  • The role yoga can play in your movement repertoire for osteoporosis
  • Movements to improve posture
  • Tips to train better balance
  • The most effective loading strategies for improving bone density and reducing the risk of compressions fractures

This one hour session will include an introductory overview, a guided practice, and time for Q&A.

If you'd like to participate in the practice portion of the seminar, please have the following tools on hand:

  • Yoga blocks
  • Blanket or pillow
  • Yoga strap (or belt)
  • Weights (optional)

You are of course welcome to simply observe the practice component if you prefer.

We're excited to have you join us for this seminar! If you cannot make the live session, but would like to have access to the seminar, please register. We will email a recording to everyone signed-up for this session later that day. See you soon!
