Beat Brittle Bones

Whether you're 17 or 70, now is the time to protect yourself from osteoporosis. Although you can't control your genetic predisposition, you can create a lifestyle that promotes preventive care for your bones. It's best for women to make these lifestyle choices in their 20s and 30s—long before perimenopause—but it's never too late to start.

Yoga can stimulate the bones to retain calcium (provided the body gets enough calcium in the first place). It does this through weight-bearing poses (such as arm balances, inversions, and standing poses) that affect the whole spine, arms, shoulders, elbows, legs, knees, ankles, and feet, while encouraging full range of motion.
