the women’s guide to preventing and treating osteoporosis

Osteoporosis and low bone mass are a major public health threat to more than 44 million people in the U.S. alone, aged 50 and over. Every 20 seconds someone suffers a bone fracture as a result of this “silent disease.” The good news is that osteoporosis is both preventable and treatable. One of the key elements to maintaining or improving your bone health is an effective exercise program. Developed by health care professionals to help prevent and treat osteoporosis, BoneJuvenate is a 30 minute exercise program which:

  • strengthens bones and muscles, including the core muscles of the body
  • enhances balance and flexibility
  • helps correct common posture problems

Certified exercise trainer Estelle Underwood’s precise and clear instruction utilizes ujjayi breathing to develop awareness and concentration.
