About The Workshop

It is widely understood that physical activity and exercise help to make bones strong; however, there is a lack of clarity about how exercise supports bone health and how we should prevent frailty in people with osteoporosis.

In this six-hour workshop, we will explore these questions by looking at the latest research and delving into the advice given by the Royal Osteoporosis Society. In particular, we will relate this to Pilates and discuss some simple ways that you can ensure you are doing the best for your clients.

This workshop has been divided into three two-hour long sessions to make it easy to assimilate online. 

Each session will have a 60-minute class aimed at a different type of osteoporotic client, from frail to post-menopausal to athletic.  During the second hour we will answer some of the commonly asked questions about the disease, the evidence for exercise, and recommended versus contraindicated exercises.

Workshop dates: Sunday 15th November, Sunday 22nd November and 29th November 2020

9.30am - 11.30am

The workshop price is for all 3 sessions. It is preferred, if possible, that participants commit to all three sessions, as the sessions will build upon earlier content. However, all who have booked and paid will receive a link to the recording, which can be visited for a further 14 days.

You must have registered at least an hour before the first scheduled workshop; a Zoom link will be sent out 1 hour before each workshop starts.

This workshop is open to both Members and Non-Members of the Pilates Foundation.

Please be aware that this workshop will be recorded. Therefore, if you ask a question or share your thoughts during this session, it will be presumed you are happy to be featured in the recording. The recording will be shared with those who have booked and paid for the workshop only, and for the limited time period of 14 days.
