Yoga has been shown in peer-reviewed publications to reverse osteoporosis and osteopenia and in over 100,000 hours of use, has caused no fractures or serious injuries of any kind.

"Yoga and medicine, used both separately and together, have tremendous healing benefits, and can minimize pain and disability." — Dr Loren Fishman

In this 6-week program attributed to Dr. Loren Fishman and Ellen Saltenstall, you will:

  • experience and practice yoga poses that build new bone

  • learn about the physiology of osteoporosis, effects of medications and what movements to avoid

  • improve your balance and co-ordination to prevent falling
