Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Yoga instructor Maddern presents easy-to-follow adjustments that preserve bone density and prevent osteoporosis in women. After assessing upper-body strength, the author outlines five separate 20-minute illustrated routines of yoga postures, targeting weight-bearing bones in the upper and lower body and designed to promote balance within the endocrine system. Most of these poses are easy to perform, and many would add a fresh dimension to the standard yoga workout. The author has also included an accessible discussion of the importance of adequate calcium intake and the avoidance of foods and substances that interfere with its absorption. Although this book is not intended to replace the services of trained healthcare professionals, the information could assist in maintaining healthy bone structure and help alleviate menopausal symptoms as we age. Recommended for public libraries building in the area of wellness or serving mature patrons.--Deborah Anne Broocker, Georgia Perimeter Coll., Dunwoody, GA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\

...this book will be received enthusiastically by women who are faced with this disease—or who plan not to fall victim to it.
