Here’s a sneak peak into one of my Aging Strong Pilates Workshops. I have conducted these workshops across the United States to ensure women are aware of the risks of osteoporosis and osteopenia, and to assist women in maintaining and regaining bone strength. If you’d like more information about a Aging Strong Pilates workshop for your group or conference, please contact me.
This DVD, created by a physical therapist, addresses exercise that targets common areas of decline as we age. It moves a a faster pace than its precursor, “BoneSmart Pilates®: Exercise to Prevent or Reverse Osteoporosis”. It is a perfect gift for yourself or someone you know that wants to age with strength and grace. Though challenging, it is safe for those with special conditions as well as osteopenia or osteoporosis. Bonus Posture Segment demonstrates how to achieve ideal sitting posture with ease.

Our October Aging Strong Inspiration is Rozz. Rozz came to me with very kyphotic posture and a desire to not follow in her mother’s mold. Her determination has paid off. Watch her 30 second video below. Dramatic improvements have been made in her strength and postural mindfulness. Way to go Rozz!

This is a common question I hear. With so much focus on sitting and electronics, kids’ posture and their bodies, are paying a heavy toll. I call it “iposture” and it’s ubiquitous. The good news is the majority of Pilates matwork is beneficial for and adaptable to kids.
My daughter Katelyn recently presented a school research project about the benefits of Pilates. See her demonstrating the mat exercise “Rolling Like a Ball” which targets core strength, spine flexibility, control, precision, breath and flow.
