You’re in safe hands. This Masterclass is run by Lynn Hammond, Chartered Physiotherapist and APPI Certified Pilates Instructor, who has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field of osteoporosis. She is a professional member of the Royal Osteoporosis society, keeps up to date with current research and has written patient leaflets about exercise and activity with osteoporosis in Eating Disorders and Pregnancy Associated Osteoporosis.
Evidence shows us that exercise and physical activity are important for our bone health. In this Masterclass, you will find out how Pilates can help promote your bone strength, benefitting you now and for your future.
However, despite our best efforts, low bone density, osteoporosis and osteoporotic broken bones do occur in some people, for numerous reasons – including ageing. But don’t despair, instead take action, as help is on hand to help you understand: your bone health, the benefits of Pilates in managing your condition and how to safely and effectively exercise. Modifications and alternative exercises will be shown and practiced, which can be used in your classes where appropriate.
The workshop is both educational (so do bring a pen and paper) and practical (so do come dressed in something comfortable for mat work and don’t worry if this is your first time doing Pilates).
Should you wish to have more individual advice, support or rehabilitation, including an individualised Pilates home exercise programme, please talk to Lynn at the end to arrange a
