Osteoporosis is a serious condition that affects 55,000 Americans. It weakens bones and increases the risk for serious fractures of the spine and hips. Dr Loren Fishman and Ellen Saltonstall have developed a yoga practice
​that is accessible to everybody and has be shown to improve bone density in 80% of their study participants.
Missy Wheeler has studied with Dr. Fishman and Ellen Saltonstall and has become certified to teach their program. In this ten week short course, you will learn important information about osteopenia and osteoporosis, the twelve poses, and modifications of the poses to keep you safe. Missy will help you to move safely through the varying levels of the poses to help you reach your highest form. Finally, facts about the current study taking place with Dr. Loren Fishman will be presented in case you are interested in joining it.
