About The Workshop

Osteoporosis is common, especially in older age, and the fractures associated with it have a huge impact on the individual, as well as costing an estimated £4 billion a year to our economy.

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 the prevention of frailty for people with osteoporosis. 

In this 6-hour workshop, we will explore this question 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, unravel some of the myths and discuss some simple ways that you can ensure you are doing the best for your students. 

The workshop will include several practical sections. It will provide you with exercises that you can teach to your older clients and exercise adaptations for your mixed groups. 


  • Understand more about the condition and why it occurs.

  • Learn about the advice from the Royal Osteoporosis Society and where it relates to exercise.
  • Exercises to take home
