Yoga For Osteoporosis: A Practice Series with Barbara Polowy
Apr
20
to May 11

Yoga For Osteoporosis: A Practice Series with Barbara Polowy

A 4-week series on Saturdays: April 20- May 11, 1:30 - 3 p.m.

Recent research shows that a regular yoga asana (yoga-poses) practice can stabilize and even reverse osteoporosis and osteopenia by improving bone density and bone quality. Yoga also promotes good posture, thus helping to maintain spinal integrity, and builds overall strength and balance to reduce the risk for falls.

This series of four classes will benefit anyone who has or is at risk for osteoporosis or osteopenia and is interested in yoga as a complementary therapy to standard medical treatment. Each class will include a series of postures to build healthy bones and improve balance, tips on adapting standard yoga poses to ensure skeletal safety, and conclude with Pranayama (yoga breathing) and a restorative sequence to quiet the nervous system.

 $70.00 for the series, $20 per class drop-in.

Students are welcome to individual classes or the whole series!

Integrative Breathwork: A Spiritual Journey Accessing the Inner Healer

Facilitated by Faith Burrington Jones, MA/LMHC

Come join us for a deep inner experience using integrative breathwork, evocative music, expressive artwork, and group sharing.

Integrative Breathwork uses the power of circular rhythmic breathing along with evocative music that mimics the ancient spiritual practice of ceremonial fire dancing while lying on a comfortable mat in a journeying position. By using circular breathing and evocative music as a conduit altering normal states of consciousness, the ego recedes, and participants are able to access their inner healer where resources are experienced for transformational healing and spiritual guidance.

This workshop facilitates deep healing and conscious awakening; it is a healing into wholeness! 

COST: $95 - For more information and to register, please call Faith at (413) 522-4220 or email at: faithjones@verizon.net
