Spinal movements in Veterans Yoga, Beaumont Texas

Spinal movements in Veterans Yoga – Beaumont Texas

One of the things that I have noticed in chair yoga classes are similar yoga pose offerings.

I took LVCYT training at the Open Center in New York City, back in October of 2012.  Laskmi Voelker has this set of yoga poses that I use in almost every class I teach, whether it is Beginners Mat class or Chair Yoga Fitness.

The Six Essential Spinal Movements.  It is lovely!

Side Lateral Flexion

and finally, Seated Twist.

Other Yoga offerings in the Golden Triangle (Beaumont, Orange, Port Arthur, Nederland) area

Seated Twist, on the yoga mat, but may also be done seated on the chair

I use them at the beginning and end of class.  They are great!

Beginners Yoga on Mondays – Nederland, Texas

Beginners Yoga on Mondays – Nederland, Tx – at Wesley UMC, 3515 Helena Avenue – $10.

Remember, you don’t have to be flexible, or in shape to do yoga. If you can breathe you can do some form of yoga. The more out of shape that you are, the more you’ll see immediate results in a regular practice.  AGAIN, you don’t need any previous experience to make dramatic changes in your life in a very short time. It doesn’t matter what shape you’re in right now, yoga is suitable for every “BODY!”  Whether in small group class or one on one individual lessons.  Give me a call to get you started on your path of health and vitality!

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!

osteo123

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.
