And there are many factors at play: genetics, nutritional deficiencies, ability to absorb nutrients, medications (glucocorticoids like cortisone, prednisone, antacids), and positive or negative stresses on the body and mind.
There is a time and place for medications, so please do not take this program to mean you should not be taking that route. This program is to give you alternative options, if not complimentary options.
Are you fearful of the side effects of the medications out there?
Have you had a hysterectomy and wondering how that will affect your bone health?
Confused about what exercises to do to help support your bones?
Wondering if foods really can help your bones get stronger?
I can't tell you how many patients I have worked with that don't have any other knowledge of how to build their bones. They are often given a first line of medications. And you know what? They are so fearful of the side effects, they remain paralyzed about what to do.
I'm telling you there are options.
I had a patient so fearful of doing the wrong movements that they just didn't do anything and became so socially isolated that they became depressed---which is a risk factor for osteoporosis. A vicious cycle.
I'm telling you, there are alternatives.
All information is evidence-based and your guide is a licensed physical therapist, yoga therapist and women's health coach.
Bonus: Handouts on 1) Strengthening Your Microbiome and 2) Balancing Blood Sugar
Can you see yourself becoming Strong, Fearless and Empowered for many years to come? No time to start like now! Join me and others in the start of this journey.
I look forward to meeting you!

Hi, I'm Tianna. I am a woman, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a knowledge seeker, a kitesurfer, a yoga therapist, a women's health coach and a physical therapist.
I have worked with hundreds of women that are worried about their bone health. And they're not just worried about their bone health, but they're worried about the solutions (or lack of) for keeping their bones healthy or maintaining their bone strength.
I've worked with:
Women that have had full hysterectomies (ovaries removed too) that were thrust into early menopause....told that they did not need their ovaries because they were no longer of child bearing age. Only to find out that they were now at risk of osteoporosis.
Women whose mother's had osteoporosis that were fearful of that same fate.
Women that are so isolated because they are fearful of going outside because they might fall.
Women that were told that there were no other options except for taking medications with serious side effects.
I've heard those fears first hand. But I've also been able to alleviate many of those fears by educating women on the risk factors of osteopenia and osteoporosis. And by providing safe exercise and yoga routines to help foster bone health and balance. And by demonstrating better postures and body mechanics to reduce the chance of fractures.
By giving you choices, I am aiming to give back your freedom. To make you feel empowered.
You'll have options at hand. And maybe medications are part of that tool box. But at least you'll be supporting yourself in more ways than one.
Why should you listen to me?
More background (perhaps boring, but necessary):
From my extensive background, I have developed methods integrating mindful movement, stress management and integrative nutrition and lifestyle to help many women develop the courage to stand tall.
And I try to walk the talk. My daily practices include:
I want this empowerment for you too. We may not share the exact same life....but the story is similar.......Transitioning from a feeling of hopelessness and fear towards one of vibrant resilience. Climbing up that hill, only to get to the top and finding another hill just beyond. But you'll know just how to apply the best self-care so you can make it to the next peak.
Will you join me in creating a journey of resiliency for yourself?
"I feel this programme empowered me by helping me gain an understanding of my diagnosis; its causes and implications as well as ways in which i can improve my bones. Informative and enlightening content, with the support of Tianna throughout. Thank you
This is what one user learned from the program.......
"The importance of boron and magnesium....a calming breath exercise....and that calcium was so important for heart health, nervous system and blood."
