This is a specialist class suitable for anyone suffering from osteopenia or osteoporosis or at high risk of low bone density due to sedentary work/lifestyle, family history, certain medications, eating disorders etc. This exercise programme is designed to improve muscle strength, posture, stamina, flexibility, co-ordination, balance and body awareness.
It’s also important to know that many ‘mainstream’ abdominal exercises are contraindicated so our programme includes safe and effective tummy work to flatten abs and strengthen the core, whilst protecting your spine.
Recent medical research by Dr. Marilyn Glenville Phd Cambridge University advocates that with appropriate exercise and nutrition it's possible to prevent, treat and even reverse osteoporosis in many cases.
