In this video clip I am demonstrating a slow and controlled Tai Chi walk. You will only see the leg movements because we are focusing on the weight bearing aspect of this exercise as well as balance. Notice that the exercise is performed slowly, with controlled movements to recruit several different muscle groups. Watch the clip as many times as you need before performing the walk to make sure you are clear on the proper movements. As mentioned in the video, you want to maintain the proper posture and keep the core tight. First I put my legs in a staggered stance...

Want a great stretch that will improve your posture? In the demonstration video below, Krista Magnoli explains how to perform gentle stretches for the chest and arms. This helps improve posture and reduces the rounded shoulder posture we often see. First, Cathy performs the pectoralis stretch up against the wall. One arm will stretch at a time and this should be felt in the front of the shoulder and in the chest muscles. A picture of the muscle group you are stretching will be shown on the video clip, as well. The arm is bent and not elevated past shoulder level,...

how to correct your posture
Maintaining a good posture is not just about looking good. (Although, you will look more confidant and thinner!)  A bad posture can cause some serious damage to anyone who has osteoporosis because it increases the risk of spinal bone fractures. Ouch! In a video we created below, Cathy demonstrates what a bad posture looks like. She then shows what a proper posture looks like.When you look at the proper posture you will see that the chin is slightly tucked and the shoulders are back and down so that the ear is in line with the shoulder and the shoulder is in...

abdominal crunches for osteoporosis
Here are some modifed crunch exercises for people with osteoporosis. Keep knees bent and sit on a partially deflated exercise ball for added support. Slowly roll yourself so that the ball is placed in the mid to low back region, with hands supporting the head and neck. (Only use your hands as a cushion; don't pull on your neck. Easiest way to do this is the keep your elbows wide). This exercise will strengthen the abdominal muscles in a safe way because the position of the spine is only moving from a very slight bit of extension to a "neutral spine."...
