Yoga for Osteoporosis

• Approximately one woman in two over the age of 50 will break a bone from osteoporosis.
• More women die from hip fracture than die from breast cancer, ovarian cancer and cervical cancer combined.
• The annual rate of spinal fractures is more than 1,000,000.
• In over 100,000 hours of use, this practice caused no fractures or serious injuries of any kind.

Janne's personal interest in this type of yoga was sparked by her own diagnosis of osteoporosis and her mother's history of severe osteoporosis. She is happy to report that she no longer has the diagnosis of osteoporosis after 2 years of steady practice.

Janne teaches a weekly Building Bones and Balance yoga class at Innerlight Yoga in Middletown RI.

Janne is available for both student and teacher workshops in Yoga for Osteoporosis. She also teaches private sessions to create a yoga practice that is specific to you,

Aging often brings along with it the dreaded diagnosis of Osteopenia or Osteoporosis. 
But  fear not - declining bone density is NOT unavoidable.

Recent medical studies published in peer-reviewed medical journals by Loren Fishman, MD, show that a daily yoga practice of 12 specific poses significantly improves bone density in the spine and femur. 

20 minutes a day can reverse the trend of bone thinning. 
The side effects are great - stronger muscles and bones, better posture, flexibility and often reduced anxiety.

Janne Roehm was certified in Dr. Fishman's Method of Yoga for Osteoporosis 
in February 2017. 

She has 20 years of experience teaching yoga, and training yoga teachers, 
with a dedication to finding the yoga pose for each student 
that is most effective and accessible for them.
