Osteoporosis is a disease of low bone mass that increases the risk of fracture. Currently, 10 million Americans suffer from osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a major public health threat for 28 million Americans, 80 percent of whom are women. One out of every two women, and one in eight men over the age of 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime.
Bone Safe Pilates Programs
Our Programs incorporate all of the major areas important to building stronger bones and reducing fracture risk.
Pilates also improves proprioception, the body’s awareness of its place and movement in space. On a practical level, this means training the body to better and more efficiently respond to changes, such as regaining or maintaining balance on uneven ground to reduce falls. Increased adaptability and coordination can help decrease the chance of injury from accidents or improper overuse in a particular body movement.
Our program exercise areas include:
- Postural Exercises
- Strength Exercises
- Balance Exercises
- Flexibility Exercises
- Weight Bearing and Cardiovascular Exercises
- Safe Exercise Tips
- Exercises You Should Avoid
- Each program includes BARRE training which helps with balance, flexibility and strength
- Safe Pilates programs including mat, reformer and chair
- Group classes
- Private sessions
