Agi offers pre-registered Yoga for Bone Health Clinics at Ajna Yoga Centre in Oak Bay. These 60-minute bi-weekly clinics teach the sequence of 24 poses developed by Dr. Loren Fishman, MD designed to maintain healthy bones, strengthen posture, and improve balance. Specific attention is given to the spine and hips, where the risk of fractures is greatest. Clinics are limited to six participants to allow individual instruction, attention on alignment, and progression in the poses. Participants have the option of joining Dr. Fishman's ongoing Dose-Response Study, which is looking at the long-term effects of yoga practice on bone density.
Registration is open and ongoing (space permitting). No prior yoga experience required.
