Teaching a group pilates mat class-osteopenia-osteoporosis

Posted Aug 06 2008 5:57am
“I need advice once again! I teach Mat Pilates in a “gym” setting. I had a new student enter my Pilates class, I know her from other classes and have seen her lifting weights, running, boxing, etc.. When she entered, I asked her about any conditions I may need to know about, knees, back, etc. She told me she has been diagnosed with Osteopenia of the spine and hip. So, here I am searching for advice on Osteopenia and Mat Pilates. I know that Flexion exercises are contraindicated and extension & isometric abdominal exercises (seated/supine) are beneficial but I would love you to blog on this topic. As always, many thanks!!
