Workshop on bone health

Eric Kenyon, SFG, FMS, of Form is Fitness, and local functional nutritionist Victoria LaFont are offering a day-long workshop on bone health. The Bone Workshop will be focused on how to keep your skeletal system vital and healthy, while also teaching those with issues such as osteopenia or osteoporosis how to reverse the diagnosis and regain normal bone structure.

The day-long workshop will be from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Aikido’Ka, 142 E. McKnight Way in Grass Valley. Participants are asked to bring a light lunch and wear loose clothing. The cost of the event is $75, though no one will be turned away.

Eric Kenyon will be speaking on the most effective exercises and movements for stimulating bone density increase, how much exercise is needed and how often.

He will also teach techniques that improve balance, prevent falls, minimize damage from falls and improve the ability to get yourself up and moving out of the fall situation with safety and confidence.

Participants will learn how to incorporate traditional Russian kettle bell-style weight lifting into their workout routine.

Victoria LaFont, NTP and certified GAPS practitioner will introduce the most appropriate dietary and lifestyle improvements needed to create healthy bones. Specific nutrition guidelines, common nutrient oversights and simple day-to-day menu choices will be discussed.
