12 Minutes of Yoga a Day: Your Medicine for Osteoporosis

Did you know that 12 minutes of yoga a day can be more effective than any drug to increase bone density? Professor Loren M Fishman, a physician at Columbia University has spent years gathering evidence on the impact of Yoga on bone health. She determined that: “Yoga is safe, even for people who have suffered a loss of important bone mass […] Yoga puts more pressure on the bones than gravity and by opposing one group of muscles against others, it stimulates the osteocytes, the cells that make up the bones.”

What is the Pelvic Floor?

The pelvic floor is a set of muscles and ligaments located in the lower part of the abdominal cavity, the pelvis. Its function is to support the viscera of the abdomen and pelvis (bladder and urethra, uterus, vagina and rectum). It supports the digestive, urinary (responsible for controlling urinary and anal continence), and reproductive systems.
