Yoga for Bone Health

Sustainable Health Care

Event: August 13, 2:00–5:00pm

These days the benefits of Yoga are well recognized. Many are flocking to Yoga classes for stress relief, pain relief, flexibility, increased strength, weight management, better circulation, and deep relaxation. Yoga also helps build and maintain strong bones because Yoga asanas (positions) are weight bearing. Research has shown that strengthening the muscles that pull on bones increases bone mass as well. One of the features of a Yoga assanas practice is that all the muscles in the body are strengthened so bones throughout the body are addressed.

This workshop will feature movement strategies to promote bone strength and help prevent fractures while enjoying the benefits of yoga. Instruction will include information about: the bones most susceptible to fracture, contraindicated movements for people with low bone density, the importance of alignment, and how to achieve deep relaxation.

Instructor: Susan Nelson-Kluk (Sarada) began teaching Yoga soon after completing the Sivananda Teacher Training Course in Val Morin, Quebec in 1995. Her training also includes Advanced Yoga Teacher Training, Advanced Yoga Techniques, Yoga of the Heart, Classical Yogic Meditation Training, Vedanta Course, and Advanced Movement for Skeletal Heaalth. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree from SUNY Brockport, New York in 1974 and a Masters of Science degree from UC Davis in 1992.

Susan taught Yoga for the University of California, Davis Health Awareness program for 12 years (1996–2008). She also taught Basic Yoga courses for Sacramento City College for over 5 years (2003–2008), private classes and classes in health clubs.

Susan retired from her position as a staff research associate at UC Davis in 2008 and moved with her husband to a rural property near Grass Valley.
