Pilates for Aging Bones Workshop with Jen Price: 9:00 – 10:00 AM 

Do you have a family history of Osteoporosis or Low Bone Mass?  Osteoporosis and Low Bone Mass is a major public health threat for approximately 44 million U.S. women and men aged 50 and older.  This represents 55% of the population in this age group.  It is often considered a silent disease because it typically isn’t diagnosed until a fracture happens. 

While Pilates has numerous benefits for everyone, 90% of the Matwork when taught in its traditional format is contraindicated for those with Osteoporosis. 

Join Jen for this workshop to learn Pilates do’s and don’ts for those at risk for developing or those diagnosed with Osteoporosis.
