A happy existence begins with healthy living, and that, in turn, starts with regular physical activity and mental stimulation. What better way to get both of these than through yoga classes? If you've never taken them before, don't worry – there's a beginners' Atlanta yoga session out there for you. And if you have or are at risk for osteoporosis, you may need to snap up the chance sooner rather than later.
That's because, according to the leading experts on the subject, too little physical activity can speed the onset and increase the severity of this degenerative bone disease.
And May is the perfect time to start doing yoga, since it's officially National Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month.
What can Dahn Yoga do for your skeletal health? Quite a lot actually. Several scientific investigations have indicated that this holistic regimen stimulates the bones, without putting excessive pressure on them.
In fact, a widely publicized 2009 report, which appeared in the journal Topics in Geriatric Rehabilitation, noted that yoga may even be able to reverse some of the skeletal weakening and decalcification caused by the onset of osteoporosis.
Not bad for a mind-body system that was designed to improve one's whole being. If you are one of the 40 million Americans with osteoporosis or osteopenia, it may be time to consider trying Dahn Yoga.
