Yoga is good: What are your goals? If you are worried about your bone density, then would focus on weight bearing exercise. Yoga is a good exercise in general and definitely activates the muscles as well so would be good for you. Would also consider adding in some light weighttraining as well.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
