Event description
This is the Master Course for those who want to use yoga to reverse or avoid osteoporosis, and for those who wish to teach it.

About this Event

Osteoporosis and osteopenia affect 55,000,000 Americans; there is a fracture every 3 seconds in our country. The medicines usually work, but they have quite undesirable side effects, slow down healing, and can only be taken for a few years. Yoga has been shown to work as well, or better than the medicines to build bone, does not slow down healing, and can be done throughout life. And side effects? Better balance, better posture, greater strength, wider range of motion, refined coordination and lower anxiety - all factors that further reduce the chances of falling and fracturing.

This course will teach you to teach the yoga, or may be considered a Master Course in doing it yourself. IAYT has approved its 20 hours on line and additional 20 hours in the workshop.

Loren Fishman, MD, B.Phil.,(oxon) leads the course. He has spent 1 year with Mr. Iyengar in India, and 10 years proving this yoga builds bone. Once certified, you will be able to teach others, get a citation on sciatica.org, and be able to participate in present and future studies on yoga for osteoporosis.

To be certified requires a 200 hour teaching certificate and 5 years' teaching, and passing an on-line written test and workshop practicum.

Many people who do not meet these requirements, in fact some who have never taken a yoga class before, have taken this course and practiced on their own with success. They receive the title "Registered." If they so choose, they can then meet the requirements and become automatically Certified.
