Utilize the Gentle Benefits of Yoga to Relieve the Pain and Stress of Your Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is responsible for an estimated 1.5 million fractures each year and is characterized by a weakening of the bones. Although bone density naturally begins to decrease at the age of 35, it is never too late to adopt a healthy lifestyle—and yoga can become an integral part of improving your overall health and well-being.

Gentle Yoga for Osteoporosis shows you how to integrate yoga into your exercise routine to promote bone health. Because yoga is low-impact and is easily modified to your own needs and abilities, you can safely and effectively reap the benefits of exercise by stimulating bone growth and strengthening muscles.
