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 came out in the webinar on April 10th in which Carrie Owerko and I demonstrated Beginner, Intermediate and Classic versions of each pose. As it turned out, we repeated the webinar the next weekend because there were technical difficulties the first time.
Interested parties may arrange to have a URL to the MP4 recording the entire session of the webinar by writing to Erika@sciatica.org
We are also 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. It will have a working index, enabling users to select some Beginner, some Intermediate and some Classic versions of the different poses, each with verbal descriptions. That way advancing from Beginner to Intermediate to Classic will be smoother and safer. This is taking a little longer to assemble, but should be available within a few weeks at most.
