Yoga for osteoporosis
Sitting for long periods can shorten and tighten the inner thighs, groin, and hip flexors — which can cause poor posture and back pain. Garland Pose is a hip-opening yoga posture that helps to lengthen and open the hips, creating more mobility for all of your daily activities. Hip-opening yoga poses like Malasana are traditionally used to help prepare the body for long periods of seated meditation.Malasana improves balance, concentration, and focus. Malasana is particularly beneficial for women
