To help people maintain strong bones and stay independent as they age, Yoga for Strong Bones classes will be offered from 6 to 7:15 p.m., Monday to Wednesday, May 13 to 15, at Rehoboth Beach Dance and Company, 19287 Miller Road, Rehoboth Beach.
Studies show that one out of two women and one out of four men over the age of 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis. Ellyn Hutton, BSN, RN, has trained with Dr. Loren Fishman, who researched the positive effects of yoga on bone density. Once certain techniques are learned, practicing just 12 minutes daily will provide benefits. No yoga experience is necessary. Props such as chairs and blocks are provided.
Cost is $66 for the three-class workshop. Class size is limited, and early registration is encouraged. Ongoing monthly workshops will be scheduled.
