Yoga at Woodville Park - Sundays in September

Gloucester Yoga is partnering with Gloucester County PR&T to provide a FREE yoga class on Sundays from 9:30 – 10:30. We will be meeting in Field 1. There is plenty of room in the field to spread out. Please ensure mats are placed 10 feet apart.

You will be required to complete a Release and Waiver of Liability Agreement when you arrive unless you already have one on record at Gloucester Yoga. Please arrive early with your mask on to sign the form. Bring your mat or towel, water bottle, and whatever props you may need (blanket, blocks, strap).

This class will challenge you where you are at in your practice. Poses will promote stability and flexibility of the body, self-awareness and clarity at the level of the mind, a sense of calm and balance at the level of the emotions, and overall wellness. This class links body movement with breath and ends with a period of relaxation.

In the event of inclement weather class will be cancelled. Any cancellation will be posted on the home page of Gloucester Yoga.

Visit Gloucester County's site for information and directions to Woodville Park.

Taught by Nancy Sessoms, E-RYT 500, Certified in Dr. Fishman's Method for Osteoporosis

Have you been diagnosed with osteopenia or osteoporosis? Are you concerned about falling? Are you young and want to reduce the risk of bone loss? Do you want to explore the kind of yoga that is proven to build bones in as little as twelve minutes a day? Yoga has been shown in peer-reviewed publications to reverse osteopenia and osteoporosis.

Yoga for Bone Health is a targeted practice developed by Dr. Loren Fishman, M.D. designed to help maintain a healthy skeleton, strengthen posture, and improve balance. Gloucester Yoga is offering a six-week series taught via Zoom. In this series you will be guided through all three variations of eleven poses and discover which stage is safe but effective for you at this time. The twelfth pose is savasana. The poses can be adapted for all levels of physical ability. Study results show that practicing this regimen for as little as twelve minutes a day can reverse osteoporotic bone loss.
