Studies from the Harvard Medical School have shown that resistance, weight-bearing and impact exercises help to build bone density. And while exercise is a critical factor in improving and maintaining bone health, evidence shows that not all exercise is created equal when it comes to building stronger bones. For those with osteoporosis and osteopenia, it’s crucial to learn the best ways to move to avoid fractures and injury.
For all the things we do each day, this class provides evidence-based exercises that support and replicate daily movements for those with osteoporosis and osteopenia, as well as discussions on nutrition, posture and safe movement. Rhonda Hamer gives you the tools and information you need to take charge of your bone health to improve strength, flexibility, posture, balance and body awareness.
The class is appropriate for those comfortable moving for up to 45 minutes and getting on and off the floor.
I wanted to say how much I'm enjoying your class. You are a gem! Wish I had learned about this class decades ago. I want to keep learning in your class.
