Osteo Friendly Pilates

Jun 17, 2022

Maintain a neutral position with the spine during this entire class to keep it Osteopenia/Osteoporosis safe.

We’ll begin this class with a standing awareness exercise before moving with a standing warm-up. Fostering awareness of the natural curves of the spine is essential in any Pilates practice, especially if you have osteopenia or osteoporosis.

After the standing Pilates warmup, we’ll take it down to the mat to work on core stability exercises, including a variation of the hundred.

From there you’ll move with seated, side-lying, and kneeling exercises with an extra emphasis on form. To close the practice we’ll move with back strengthening and standing exercises.

As always if there’s an exercise that feels too challenging or is not good for you, pick a different exercise or stretch to move with.
