Second Set of Poses: Yoga vs. Osteoporosis
The initial DVD “Yoga vs. Osteoporosis” has been very successful in reversing osteopenia and osteoporosis in those that have it, and building bone in those that don’t have it and don’t want it. The peer-review study confirms that:
In the 10 years we’ve studied the 12 poses vs. Osteoporosis, Caryna Wong, Ellen Saltonstall, Yi-Hsueh Lu, Gabriella Barnstone, Dr. Gregory Chang and I have found that they’re effective in building bone, inexpensive, and just about harmless. However, there are four reasons to go further:
1. Although some practitioners are fascinated by going deeper and deeper into the asana, others lose their focus through the daily repetition and are frankly bored.
2. Further, we know these poses work, but do not know if there aren’t others that’ll work better, or for different people.
3. The first set of poses is not perfect: The first set does not include the wrist, a common site of fracture.
4. Several people complained that the poses go too fast.
Therefore Caryna Wong and I have designed a Second Series which we do treat the wrist, hold the poses for 40 seconds, and have a slight break between each pose. The Second Set is based on all we have learned in the last 10 years of study. It will come out in the webinar on April 10th in which Carrie Owerko and I will demonstrate Beginner, Intermediate and Classic versions of each pose:
We will go over Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced versions of each of the 12 poses in order. Those wish may do the asana at home during the webinar. Participants will receive a MP4 recording the entire session within 24 hours following the webinar.
We will also be putting together a DVD and You tube version which will have a different order. All the Beginner poses will appear in a continuous series, with a short pause between each pose; all the Intermediate poses in a similar continuous series, and all the Classic poses that way too, for greater ease in doing the poses. This will take a little longer to assemble, and we’ll let you know when it’s available.
