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.

Whether you are looking to prevent the onset of osteoporosis or have been diagnosed with the disease and aim to reduce your symptoms, Gentle Yoga for Osteoporosis is your complete guide to relieving pain and stress through yoga.

Gentle Yoga for Osteoporosis also includes:
- An overview of the causes and symptoms of osteoporosis
- Helpful diet and lifestyle tips to improve bone health
- An introductory guide to understanding the benefits of yoga
- Important precautions to ensure safety during yoga practice

Gentle Yoga for Osteoporosis features easy-to-follow sequences designed to maximize the benefits of yoga for individuals with osteoporosis.

The Gentle Yoga series seeks to promote the many beneficial effects of yoga exercise in the treatment of specific diseases. The exercises are clearly illustrated, safe, and tailored to your condition. Each book in the series also provides an overview of the disease as well as other lifestyle tips to improve overall health and daily functioning.
