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 demonstrate how distribution of pressure in the foot affects posture, balance and mobility

To restore springiness and flexible knee articulation

To expand freedom of movement and flexibility in the hip joint while securing a reliable, uncompromised alignment of posture.

To address problems of over-flexibility and over-rigidity in the lumbar area

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

Participants will:

Discover where the pressure of the foot needs to be focused in ideal walking

Learn how to mechanically create and mentally accept unlocked knees

Train the hip joint to avoid over-reaction to foot pressure when walking
