Event description
Yoga therapy for Osteoporosis provides a detailed look at how to therapeutically help clients strengthen muscles to support the aging body.

About this Event

Throughout the world, 1 in 3 women over the age of 50 and 1 in 5 men will experience osteoportic fractures, occurring primarily in the hips and spine. Research conducted by Dr. Loren Fishman found that specific yoga poses, practiced in a specific manner are effective in halting the progression and even reversing osteoporosis. Elizabeth is certified by Dr. Fishman and will provide an informative and highly experiential yoga therapy clinic that will empower yoga therapists, yoga teachers, and other healthcare providers with yoga experience to help their students struggling with bone density loss to adapt the poses so they no longer risk painful and debilitating fractures.

The discussion segment features powerpoint presentations that educate participants on movements that are contraindicated for those with bone density concerns, a detailed look at muscles that need to be strengthened and stretched to support proper posture that is critical as we age, nutrients the body needs to strengthen bone, and practical applications for daily life regarding posture, balance and body mechanics. The practice segment builds on the education segment with body movements that work the specific areas learned about during the presentation. We will also practice the 12 poses for Osteoporosis that are proven through Dr. Fishman’s work with a method proven to stop bone loss. Practical handouts are included.

Elizabeth Yates is a certified yoga therapist and has been loving, living, and teaching yoga for over 20 years. While living a high stress life in the corporate environment, she took her first yoga class 25 years ago! Through yoga she realized the pain in her body was caused by contraction that was the body’s response to a stress filled life. That first class changed her life and the yoga techniques learned so long ago have blossomed into a way of life that relieves suffering for herself and all those who work with her through one on one yoga therapy and group classes. Elizabeth’s extensive education includes a Master’s Degree in Counseling and multiple yoga teacher certifications including Yoga for Osteoporosis and Structural Yoga Therapist Certification. Her highest and most beloved study and practice is a deep relationship with the Divine.
