Throughout the inevitable process of aging, our bodies contract as we lose height, strength, and flexibility. Stiffening is one of the first perceptible signs of premature aging, followed by a natural atrophy of the venous supply to the disks of the spine. How can we reverse this sad trend of deterioration? Any doctor will tell you that staying physically fit is critical, since movement lubricates the muscles, ligaments, and joints. According to yoga philosophy, it is the flexibility of the spine, not the number of years, that determines a person's age. Unlike high-impact exercises that put stress on the body, yoga stretches the spine, encouraging fresh blood and nerve flow to revitalize all the major glands and organs while lowering the stress hormones that age us.

When accomplished yoga practitioner Argie Tang was diagnosed with osteopenia, she began to seek out yoga routines that would add more toning, strengthening, and muscle definition without requiring machines in a gym. Tang teamed up with Prisca Boris to develop Pulse Yoga, a unique twist on traditional yoga workouts. Incorporating yoga flow, core fusion, weight training, and Pilates, Pulse Yoga is a challenging mix of disciplines that maximizes anti-aging results.

Pulse Yoga uses free weights and micro-movements, which primarily target the gluteus muscles, abdominals, upper arms, and lower back, delivering an intense full-body workout. Dr. Paul Arciero, Head of Exercise Physiology at Skidmore College, conducted an eight-week study with volunteers who practiced Pulse Yoga three times a week for up to 75 minutes a day. The results of the study showed decreased body weight, hip/waist circumference, and cholesterol among participants, proving that this fitness concept provides significant health benefits.

Pulse Yoga is perfect for anyone hoping to increase strength and improve overall bone density while getting a full cardiovascular workout. Only have half an hour? You can pack plenty of "Pulse" in that time. Leave a comment under this post telling us why you need to boost your fitness level. One lucky reader will get a Pulse Yoga Express DVD, featuring a condensed routine that addresses every major workout need. We will select the winner next Monday- Labor Day- in celebration of your hard-working efforts to stay healthy.

    This sounds like a perfect mix for those of us with osteopenia.

    Serendipity! I've been researching my next steps for firming, toning, and strengthening my body (I want some muscle definition), and TIA is offering a Pulse Yoga DVD!

    What started this somewhat obsessional journey was that Michelle Obama's arms have driven me into realms of jealousy I didn't know I was capable of feeling. As a result, I have a three-month goal of total commitment to changing the look of my body from slim and limber (but soft) to defined and strong.

    I am in my 50s, hike, practice desultory yoga and use resistance bands, but know I need to get serious about challenging myself if I want to rock some sleeveless dresses. I was thinking about free weights, read about weight machines, researched Pilates, but this seems as though it might just do the trick rather handily.

    And I won't have to drive an hour to work out at a gym, either. Excellent!

    I've been seeking a yoga based excercise video for the last few weeks. There were tons of them at the sporting goods store last Christmas, but I can't find them now. Okay, so I've accepted the fact that I am no longer 40-ish, and may actually be getting old (52)! But do I have to look and feel old? I say, NO! And yoga seems to be the smartest way to combat the inevitable. I want one!

    I would definitely love to try this. I have been getting stiffer the older I get, especially upon getting out of bed in the morning or after sitting long hours on the computer. I am curious what results a person would get with the 30 minute video, as the study that showed such great results was done on participants doing "up to 75 minutes" .

    I really need this! I have a job where I sit and stare at the computer all day. I have noticed that after a while it's really hard to get up out of the chair.

    I've done pilates but it doesn't seem to be doing any good right now and I think I need to step it up.

    This article hit home as I've noticed an increasing level of stiffness which has been a little frightening. I've been doing pilates for ages, but it hasn't been having the same impact of late. I'd love to try something new. This is especially appealing due to my current lack of income from being laid off earlier this year.

    My plan would be to test for 4 weeks, keeping a daily log of exercise and flexibility observations focusing on the use of the dvd.

    Thanks,
    Steph
