Pilates Equipment: Osteo Strength


This class is taught by:

Sarah B.

Sarah came to Pilates after a back injury several years ago which seriously impacted her ability to exercise. Pilates Therapy at Chaturanga offered a gentle introduction to the Pilates practice and philosophy which started Sarah on her current journey as she seeks to become fully PMA certified through the Chaturanga Teacher Training program. Whilst teaching at the studio, Sarah became curious about Pilates for Osteoporosis and was inspired to take further training at Basi Pilates in California to understand how Pilates can help bone strength, and to ensure that her Pilates Therapy and Osteo Strength classes adhere to bone safe principles for those with the condition. Through Pilates, Sarah hopes to help others improve their core stability, overcome their injuries and become stronger and more flexible humans, so they can be at their best and live life to the fullest!
One out of every two women over the age of 50, and one in every four men have low bone density - either osteopenia or osteoporosis. Even younger adults should be thinking about their bone health now - especially if they have a parent who has been diagnosed with one of these conditions. Osteo Strength Pilates Group Equipment class is specifically designed to improve your bone health through the use of weight bearing exercise and optimizing posture. In addition the class will also provide you with the other benefits of Pilates; improving strength, muscle mass, balance and flexibility - all of which can contribute to correct alignment and prevent falls. The class will be careful to avoid those exercises/positions contraindicated for those with reduced bone density. Some experience with Pilates Equipment Level 1 classes is highly recommended before enrolling in Mixed Level Classes. You should get approval from your medical practitioner and/or Physical Therapist before starting a new exercise program.
