Book Description

31 Mar 2010
Osteoporosis leads to painful fractures due to loss of bone mass; yoga strengthens bones without endangering joints: it stands to reason that yoga is the perfect therapy for osteoporosis. Forty-four million Americans suffer from low bone mass, and osteoporosis is responsible for more than 1.5 million fractures annually. Drugs and surgeries can alleviate pain, but study after study has shown that exercise is the best treatment, specifically low-impact, bone-strengthening exercises hence, yoga. In this comprehensive and thoroughly illustrated guide, Loren Fishman and Ellen Saltonstall, who between them have seven decades of clinical experience, help readers understand osteoporosis and give a spectrum of exercises for beginners and experts. Classical yoga poses, as well as physiologically sound adapted poses, are presented with easy-to-follow instructions and photographs. The authors welcome readers of all ages and levels of experience into the healing and strengthening practice of yoga."

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written and easy to understand 11 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a yoga teacher in my 60's and recently diagnosed with osteopenia (as a result of earlier medical problems) I bought this book which I have found to be full of informative and useful information. It is easy to understand, describes the structure of bones, understanding DEXA scores etc. It provides guidance for the safe practice of yoga and I wish that I had bought this book before others I have as I would not have felt the need for another book.

By Liz
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is full of good sound advice and information for any unfortunate osteoporosis sufferer. Not the easiest description of exercises to follow however.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read and follow the yoga adaptions. 30 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like this books layout and explanation of research . The poses and suggestions to adapting the poses are easy to follow and I appreciate the notes on pitfalls to be aware of. Having felt very vulnerable after the diagnosis of Osteoporosis it is heartening to read such a book by people who do yoga and understand the needs of people such as myself who still wish to continue their own practice albeit with props and adaptations to postures.

Some good modified poses here. Nicely presented, good, intelligent instruction, and offers variations to accommodate various health conditions. Gives the formal and English names.
