About this Event

“If you only go to one workshop in your life, this is it.” — GA, Atlanta
“Dr. Fishman is a Thomas Edison of Yoga.” — William Broad, Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalist
“To his patients, Dr. Fishman is a miracle worker.” — Jane Brody, New York Times

COURSE OVERVIEW:

Portland-based Diane Thompson of Yoga Just As You Are hosts this 40-hour certification course with Dr. Loren Fishman. [20 hours online and 20 hours in studio]

The course is based on Dr. Fishman's 10-year study demonstrating 12 yoga poses that:

  • reliably reverse osteoporosis
  • have been shown to prevent fractures
  • improve bone mineral density and raise bone quality
  • have a significant positive impact on both posture and balance

The Fishman Method is currently being taught by 220 certified teachers in 42 states and 8 countries, with well over 100,000 hours of injury-free practice.

The online study brings deeper understanding of bone health, including physiology in the different ages of women and men, microanatomy of bones (how do they form, what happens in adulthood?), and how yoga works to reverse bone loss.

In the workshop, you’ll learn how to teach Beginner, Intermediate, and Classical versions of the 12 poses proven to build bone in healthy and weakened bone at any age. You will learn how to evaluate students' level of skill and level of effort, as well as the art of advancing people from one level to the next.

Please note: We encourage workshop participants who want to learn the techniques for their own well-being, whether teaching or not.
