Presenter: Karen Clippinger, MSPE
Pilates can offer a vital mode of reducing some of the important declines associated with aging. This workshop will provide classical and novel Pilates-based exercises to enhance bone density; counter kyphosis and loss of lumbar extension; improve lower body antigravity functional strength; address overhead reaching and grip strength; and promote balance. Recommendations for exercise modification for selected conditions commonly accompanying aging such as arthritis and osteoporosis will also be presented.
This course is approved by the PMA for 6 CECs.
