Yoga for Osteoporosis

"Yoga for Osteoporosis, Osteopenia or Preventive Yoga" was developed by Loren Fishman, MD.  This method teaches a safe, comfortable, yoga practice…modified for the needs of each individual‘s body.  Dr Fishman's 2-year scientific study showed that these 12 poses, done at home in just minutes a day, produced an 80% improvement in bone density scores compared to the non-yoga group.  That is good news!  Science has also proven numerous other health benefits gained from daily yoga practice.

YOGAGE offers a course based on Dr. Fishman’s research.

Goals of the Course: Develop a daily yoga practice at home to improve bone density

The course consists of two private sessions*.
