You can take care of your bones, no matter your age! Protect your bones with a well-balanced diet, including calcium and vitamin D; get regular exercise; avoid smoking and limit alcohol.

Weight-bearing and muscle-strengthening exercises build and maintain bone density. Recent studies show that Yoga can strengthen bones and improve bone density.
  • Yoga is low impact, putting less stress on the bones than many other forms of exercise.
  • Longer holds in standing postures are “weight-bearing”.
  • Yoga improves balance and prevent falls. Less falls, means less potential for broken bones.
  • Yoga stretches all muscles, including those that support the joints.
  • The action of working and stretching muscles against the bone helps promote bone growth. And stronger muscles puts less strain on joints.
  • Yoga increases range of motion and brings synovial fluid to the moveable joints.
  • Ease of movement with strength and balance reduces the chance of falling.
