Healthy Aging and Pilates

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.
