It is possible to reverse osteoporosis results when you take action! Breathe. Walk. Yoga. Chi it up, baby!
A fitness-lover, with a background in dance and a passion for musicals, shares her class experience and transformation.
I think it’s cool to share your New Year’s goals, because telling others your intentions, hopes and desires can help you achieve them! So here’s what I’m up to this year -
This is the first time I’m offering an exercise that is a central part of Yoga Bones - the new class I’ve been piloting. If you haven’t been able to make it and you are wondering what we are doing in there - here’s what I want you to know!
Last year, around this time, I shared an easy to follow 7-day Fall Detox (from Yoga Journal) that consists of a few days of eating dahl and vegetable broth and herbal teas. Join me as I give it another try!
I’m very excited about presenting a new class format called Yoga Bones (starting this Saturday) because addressing bones now can have significant impact on your future health status when you take the right actions now. (And, inevitably, we are all going to be older some day…)
I’m happy to announce that I’m teaming up with a graduate student from Ithaca College’s School of Health Science and Human Performance (my alma mater), to learn about the latest research in the field of exercise physiology on bone building and older adults. In an effort to address the health concerns of my clients, I’m designing a new fitness program that is based on research-backed concepts to achieve the specific result of maintaining or improving bone density.
I promised that I would share some yoga tips to soothe achy backs this Winter. A lot of my students are coming in complaining about sore and achy backs and as I mentioned when I get cold my body tends to hunch up and then my neck and upper back get sore and achy. If you feel the same as me then here are a few simple yoga tips that will help “counter-pose the winter-cold-asana”.
More details about the ancient Indian Ayurvedic technique, Abhyanga, as I share my own step-by-step routine to help myself cope with our Rochester Winter.
My goal this year is to overcome my disdain of Winter and embrace what it has to offer. Here is my brainstorm for winter survival.
Fall is a good time to prepare the body for a long winter and my goal is to make it through the season without a bad cold or flu. To help my body maintain balance, I am going to do a very gentle form of a Fall Detox and I welcome you to join me.
I want to respond to an article in USA Today that one of my “Sassy Seniors” shared with me in July, “Retirees: Sitting disease may be killing you”.
