Untertitel: Yoga that builds and preserves strong bones – the complete guide

Klappentext: Osteoporosis leads to painful fractures due to the loss of bone mass; yoga strengthens bones without endangering joints: it stands to reason that yoga is the perfect therapy for osteoporosis. 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 healing and strengthening practice of yoga.

Loren Fishman, MD, is a professor at the Columbia College of Physcians and Surgeons and a founding partner of Manhattan Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, LLP. His other books include Sciatica Solutions, Yoga for Arthritis, and Yoga for Back Pain.
