Osteoporosis Intervention DVDs
For home practice, Bone Building Yoga offers three levels of practice: Gentle (for beginners and those with structural problems), Standard (for continuing students or those without significant bone loss), and Extra (for prevention, appropriate for the younger, stronger, or long term yogi.)
Each DVD offers a complete practice for building strength in the areas of fracture vulnerability: wrists, hips, spines. In addition, these practices increase balance, coordination, and body awareness. The DVD practices are the same material as is featured in the Manual. See samples below .
