Yoga and bone density

The NY Times lists yoga poses that take 12 min altogether; if done regularly, they should increase the density in major parts of one’s skeleton.

There is also a site that describes three levels for doing the poses: with osteoporosis, with osteopenia, and ordinary, unassisted practice.

Yoga is also a great source of relief from stress, but 12 min is probably far from optimal.
