YOGA FOR BONE HEALTH
Approximately 10 million Americans age 50+ have osteoporosis and are at risk for breaking bones.
Studies have proven that yoga has the power to protect us from fractures by building bone mass/density.
YOGA'S BENEFITS HAVE POWER THAT NO MEDICATION CAN DUPLICATE.
Unlike medications prescribed for osteopenia and osteoporosis, yoga has no negative side effects.
In fact, it has added benefits, like reduced stress/cortisol.

DR. LOREN FISHMAN'S METHOD
"Yoga and medicine, used both separately and together, have tremendous healing benefits for patients, and can minimize pain and disability."
I've had the privilege of being formally trained in Dr. Fishman's Yoga for Bone Health method. The 12 poses in this method work on the hip, the spine and the neck of the femur to create more bone mass.

WHAT STUDIES SAY
Dr. Fishman’s Pilot Study revealed the incredible benefits of yoga for bone health.
Participants in the 2-year yoga practice gained the DEXA scan equivalent of .563 and .867 BMD in the spine and hip respectively.
Learn more about the subsequent studies here.
This workshop helped me understand bone production, nutritional benefits, yoga poses, & healthy lifestyle. I start every day practicing these poses and have improved balance, strength, and stamina.
