Yoga Stretches for easing Osteoporosis or Osteopenia
First Twelve Yoga Poses and Second Twelve Yoga Poses for Osteopenia and Osteoporosis bone-building efforts.
Are you dynamically holding the postures to help build bone?
Even in mountain yoga pose, which basically is standing, one can push their feet into the ground, then push the feet away,. You’ll notice the sensation of your muscles being activated.
When you have that great muscle activation, and stay in the pose for at least 30 seconds….that muscle contraction stimulates bone growth. That is where your bone building begins.
The second set of poses are to address the bone-building issues with the wrists, elbows, and shoulders. Additionally giving additional weight bearing poses to complement the first set of yoga poses.
Dr. Loren Fishman has come up with a second set of poses to use for bone building. Beginners versions of the poses, intermediate and classical versions of the poses. Nice that you can mix and match depending on your body’s ability to do a pose.
