More bone building yoga poses – Nederland, Texas

Wow, more bone building yoga poses for lessening osteopenia osteoporosis – Nederland, Texas

Response has been overwhelming.  People want to know about using yoga for building bone density (bmd – on those dexascans folks).  Wow!


Tree, Triangle & Warrior Two (2)

Here I am several years ago demonstrating these yoga poses.  But the thing is, one can do a pose, but are you actually being active in the pose?  Pressing your foot into your inner thigh, pressing the feet apart in a wide stance, while shoulders being aligned, and dynamically extending arms opposite directions, while pushing feet opposite directions?

Was that a long sentence or what?

Here’s the study that talks about using Yoga to raise your BMD in your spine and femur.


Two more bone building poses, Bridge and Locust!

Happy to work with you one on one to assist you in your bone building journey. Either through private yoga lessons at Exygon Health and Fitness or private yoga in your home. Gail Pickens-Barger, 409-727-3177.

Yoga and Adaptive Yoga for MS – Beaumont and Nederland Texas

Each week, on Thursday, I conduct a adaptive yoga class for those with MS.  Not only are we doing yoga, to help the MS symptoms, but there is a lot of sharing of what works for people with MS.  It is a great chance to talk to others, and share their own personal knowledge of their journey with MS.

The class is sponsored by the National MS Society, and is free of charge for those with MS and similar neurological symptoms.  Thursdays, at 10:15 a.m. at Wesley United Methodist Church, 3515 Helena Avenue, Nederland, Texas.  Care givers are also welcomed to attend the class.

The Lone Star Chapter of the National MS Society, sponsors both the yoga classes and the self support group.  More information and contact information can be found at:
