Pilates for Strong Bones & Muscles (Online)

Healthy bones are the result of weight bearing exercise, including standing, balancing, weight shifting and bouncing.  Add resistance bands and weighted balls to increase muscle tone, and you have the workings of a whole body strength class. Exercises alternate between standing and laying or seated on the mat, and are integrated with Pilates principles to improve posture and alignment, enhance cardiovascular system through systemic breath work and strengthen core muscles.
