Dem Bones Therapeutic Workshop

It's never too early to consider and protect your bone health. Dem Bones are precious. Like a strand of pearls, connected by fine but strong threads.

Maybe degenerative bone disease doesn’t sound as scary as a hip fracture. But, take a look at statistics.

1) For example, among Americans, age 65 or older, half have been diagnosed with arthritis.
2) Two in three people who are obese will likely develop arthritis in one or both knees.
3) Unfortunately, osteoporosis and osteopenia affect up to 200,000,000 people worldwide.
4) Moreover, one in four people may develop painful hip arthritis in their lifetime.
5) Plus, annual spinal fractures in the United States exceed 700,000, with more than 300,000 potentially life-threatening hip fractures.
6) Sadly, an estimated 50 percent of those with arthritis suffer from another co-morbid disease, most typically cardiovascular disease or diabetes.
7) By 2030, an estimated 67 million American adults are projected to have doctor-diagnosed arthritis (not limited to osteoarthritis).
8) “Bone mineral density can be rebuilt with appropriate yoga techniques,” says Dr. Loren Fishman in "From the Boxing Ring to the Ashram."
9) "Yoga and arthritis were made for each other,” shares Dr. Loren Fishman in Deborah's book.

Too often, we tend to think it’s normal for our bones to bear the brunt of time. Pretty much all of us have seen the effects of advanced years on the bones. Perhaps a dowager’s hump, or grandpa who is no longer as tall as he used to be. God forbid an elderly person slips and falls, as brittle joints can’t handle what used to be normal knocks or blows. 

Consider that hip and knee replacements cost Medicare billions of dollars each year. With our aging America, poor diet, and lifestyle, the costs to our society will skyrocket if we are not proactive in protecting our bone health. And, it’s never too early to start caring for your bone health.

To respond to these figures, certified yoga therapist, Deborah Charnes, created a series of bone health workshops some years ago. Now, she’s offering a module geared toward nourishing flexibility in the joints and bone density to help ward off or keep osteoarthritis and osteoporosis at bay. Furthermore, her 90-minute on-demand offering incorporates information sharing along with movement therapy to improve and protect against arthritis and bone density loss. 

As a Continuing Education Provider (YACEP), her session is eligible for 1.5 CEUs with the Yoga Alliance.

Plus, downloadable handouts are included in the workshop.

Finally, your purchase also entitles you to lifetime access, to experience the session as many times as you desire. Your bone health is a valuable, lifelong pursuit, and returning to this session will support that ongoing, worthwhile process.

~ Laura, yoga therapy client

Since I started yoga therapy, my life changed. I started to change the products that I have in my kitchen ... quinoa, chia, teas, ginger, and more salads. Beyond my new way to eat, I feel much better. I sleep all night long. I feel so relaxed. More energized. I found a new world of “no stress” and happiness … I’m on my way with awesome results. Thanks, Deborah.
