Art of Living Retreat Center. Boone, North Carolina.
This course is offered as a 40 hour certification course qualifying people to teach Dr. Fishman’s Method, that has been shown in peer review publication to raise bone mineral density in people with and without osteoporosis. The 40 hour course is divided into twenty hours online, and twenty practical teaching hours in the four day workshop. Everyone taking the course should get in touch with the Art of Living Retreat near Boone, North Carolina to register.
The strong theoretical and scientific basis for Dr. Fishman’s Method is best mastered through the 20 hours online, and will be furthered by reading Dr. Fishman’s and Ellen Saltonstall’s book “Yoga for Osteoporosis.” The 20 hour workshop is given by Dr. Fishman and Caryna Wong. It focuses on actually teaching the twelve proven poses to both novices and expert yoga practitioners. We will go over poses that lead up to the classical pose as well as more remedial options to which teachers will have frequent recourse. Practice teaching in small groups with close instruction is key to the process. People who study with you afterwards are bound to have questions about why and how yoga works so well, whether medications are a good idea, what they should and shouldn’t eat, and the other factors that make yoga so desirable. A broad and deep understanding of osteoporosis is a sine qua non for trustworthy teaching Dr. Fishman’s Method.
Everyone in the course will learn how to teach the poses to veteran yoga practitioners and new-comers alike. Participants in this course will be certified to teach the method to others. A curriculum for subsequent teaching is suggested, along with a study guide. To obtain certification, there will be a written and practical exam in the final hours of the workshop.
Graduates of the course will also have the option of playing an active part in Dr. Fishman’s new Dose – Response study on yoga in osteoporosis.

Yogaville. Buckingham, Virginia Yoga for Back Pain
Caryna Wong and Dr. Fishman focus on lower back pain over the weekend. We will go over the seven basic types of back pain and sciatica, how to recognize them, and how to use yoga to benefit those who suffer from them. Between the two of them, they have over 50 years of experience in treating the disorders that cause back pain with yoga, and have been aided by all the insights and advantages of contemporary medical science. MRI EMG, and surgery have helped them understand the nature of back pain, and what underlies its chronicity. Those taking this course are likely to put on some of the wisdom that has come from treating well over 50,000 patients, and determining what works with whom.
