I was honored to present at the 23rd Annual Health Living Retreat for Women sponsored by the Stanford Health Improvement program which is part of the School of Medicine. My workshop entitled BoneSmart: Movement Strategies to improve Posture, Balance and Bone Strength was attended by an enthusiastic audience of Stanford Alumni who are interested in aging strong.
My sister Mercedes flew from New York to serve as my right hand assistant. We enjoyed engaging conversations with many of the alum and took advantage of the beautiful surroundings at Fallen Leaf Lake. Amidst much laughter we hiked, kayaked, and ate healthily and abundantly!
It is a privilege to be able to give participants the ability to change the course of their lives through BoneSmart Pilates workshops.
Enjoy the video highlights above. I had so much fun sharing with this lively, smart and inquisitive group of women. If you know of a group that would like to host this workshop, please contact me by replying to this email.
Description of my BoneSmart Workshop below.
“1 in 2 women over 50 will experience an osteoporosis related fracture in their lifetime (NOF 2005) Despite common misconceptions, this is not just a concern for the elderly. This workshop will provide an overview of the scientific research and current guidelines to improve your bone density and decrease your fracture risk. Learn 5 simple strategies you can apply right away to improve your muscle and bone strength, posture and balance.”
I am the lead coordinator of this event sponsored by American Bone Health, and along with a team of volunteers, we will be conducting free fracture risk assessments. Come and see where you fall in the fracture risk continuum and learn active steps you can take to mitigate your risk of breaking a bone.
We are bombarded through media, with anti-aging approaches like botox, plastic surgery, facial creams and expensive supplements. Everyone makes the choices that feel right for them but I want to share with you an additional approach you can add, that works from the “inside out”.
Did you know that Pilates can make you look and feel younger? This is all without expensive creams, needles or surgery. The only side effects? Improved flexibility, balance, strength and posture! Exercise also improves your skin and complexion. By increasing blood flow, exercise helps nourish skin cells and keep them vital. We lose about 1% of our leg strength and about ½ a percent of our bone density yearly, after we hit 50. Pilates slows down the muscle and bone loss that occurs with aging.
Both the local Aging Strong Pilates™ class that I teach in Mountain View, CA and my DVD series AGING STRONG Pilates™, focuses on those areas at risk of decline as we age. They include the hips and legs (to keep us strong, mobile and doing what we love), the spine (to prevent slouching/hyperkyphosis) and balance (to prevent falls).
If you’re not local, find a Pilates teacher that is certified through the Pilates Method Alliance and who has the skills to customize a program to your abilities. If you have certain challenges like osteopenia, osteoporosis, herniated discs or stenosis, your instructor should be aware of the movement contraindications and create a program that keeps you challenged yet safe.
Remember- 1x a week is helpful but consistency is key in the Pilates anti-aging formula. If you can’t get to another class, make sure your instructor gives you an individualized home exercise program (and try my DVD’s!) Now get up, move and AGE STRONG!
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.
