Dr. Loren Fishman has come up with a second set of poses to use for bone building.  Beginners versions of the poses, intermediate and classical versions of the poses.  Nice that you can mix and match depending on your body’s ability to do a pose.

Interested?  Give me a call, Gail Pickens-Barger, 409-727-3177, leave a voice message if I am unable to get to your phone call.   We can work together to get you started on your bone building journey!

Yup! Annual OBGYN appointment.  Mentioned to my doc, that I was participating in the international study where one uses yoga to build bone strength, instead of taking the recommended bone density pharmaceuticals.  She asked all lot of questions, and I told her about Dr. Loren Fishman’s study of 8 years, where he demonstrated that a particular sequence of 12 yoga poses lessened the effects of osteoporosis and osteopenia.  Wow!  She wanted to know how I helped folks with this issue, and I gave her a stack of business cards.

Apparently there are a lot of folks out there who want to try their hand at reducing their risk of fracture with exercise.  I’m here to help!

This is a great for someone who is using yoga as a tool to help increase their bone strength.

I teach yoga lessons that are focused on bone strength using dynamic tension, duration and alignment to have the most effective practice for bone strength.   Bone health is critically important for supporting the structure of the body, protecting organs and providing the foundation for a strong musculature.  Prevention strategies should be a priority for everyone and especially people at risk for osteopenia and osteoporosis.  Fortunately, there is an increasing body of evidence that show exercise and especially practicing yoga and good for preventing bone loss and in some cases, may stimulate the formation of new bone structure.  A recent study conducted by Loren Fishman, MD, found that a regular yoga practice can increase bone density, muscular strength and balance….all which is good news for decreasing the risk of falls and fractures.

After you have figured out what level of poses that you are to do safely, It can take about 25 minutes to go through the first 11 sets of poses.  But one needs to do a good 7 – 9 minute relaxation, to really enjoy the stress reduction effort!
