This course is aimed primarily at teachers who wish to integrate exercises designed to combat osteoporosis into their weekly classes. It is also suitable for anyone with a desire to improve their movement and posture.
It is not necessary to have attended ‘Bones for Life’ before attending this day, though they do complement each other.
About the Tutor
Marye trained for five years at the Dharma Yoga Centre under the tutelage of Julie Friedeberger and Swami Dharmananda, and later spent four years at Mandala Yoga Ashram in Wales.
She trained on Ruth Alon's "Bones for Life”™ programme, designed to stimulate bone strength through natural movement and weight-bearing posture. She has also trained on Ruth's "Walk for Life" programme in optimal gait dynamics that helps participants learn to walk 'the way Nature meant'.

To improve comfort and efficiency in walking by fostering harmonious co-ordination between all body parts
To enhance the pleasure of moving, thereby strengthening the bones.
Objectives of the Day
