Building a strong foundation.

by Megan Leigh on July 26, 2014

I hope that the belly of summer is a wonderful time for you all.  Next up here at CY is a series of classes for those of you with osteoporosis, osteopenia and/or scoliosis.  Yoga works to build bone density more effectively than almost any other activity.   Here’s how it works…

Gravity, dynamic tension and mechanical force all contribute to healthy bone density.  And while gravity is powerful, it’s effects can be multiplied by dynamic tension. How? Dynamic tension is created when one muscle group opposes the action of another. Most yoga poses create dynamic tension thereby build strong bones. Bone density can only be increased through sustained activity. So while massage and acupuncture may help alleviate symptoms, a passive modality will ultimately not increase density.  And while movement of all types contributes to our health,  sustained action of 8 seconds or more is the key. Yoga poses, unlike actions created by sports such as tennis or rowing are sustained for at least that amount of time.

Please register if you plan to attend as there are no walk-in slots available for this workshop. And leave a little time after class for a plunge in our swimming hole or to  sit under the waterfall.
