Dr. Loren Fishman has also just started a new study and Be The Change is actively supporting this research by hosting these monthly classes with Susan Kjesbo. Being in a study is a very motivating factor to help someone keep up their yoga practice for stronger bones. This new study is hoping to establish a relationship between quantity and quality of yoga and the rise in bone mineral density.
If you are interested in joining the study contact Susan Kjesbo at yoga@susankjesbo.com for the study enrollment forms. By enrolling in the study you will need to get a DEXA scan to measure bone density (covered by insurance) and then one more in 2 years to evaluate the difference. If you would like to enroll in the study, you will receive all of the bone strength classes for $10 a class.
