This month Pilates focus is dedicated to Dorothy and to all our customers who desire stronger, healthier bones!
Dorothy is one of our customer’s nickname. At the age of 35, Dorothy has been diagnosed with osteoporosis. With a kind and positive attitude, Dorothy talks about the benefits of being diagnosed with Osteoporosis. In her view, this diagnostic helped her to discover the underlying cause of her condition, a celiac disease, which left untreated could’ve caused further health complications. She used these conditions as a reason to change her lifestyle.
Fast forward 30 years, and although living with osteoporosis and celiac condition it has its challenges, Dorothy has not been deterred from leading an active and fulfilling life. In the recent months she has also discovered the amazing benefits of the Pilates Reformer Bed exercise. The supportive nature of the equipment and the safe Pilates exercises are incredibly beneficial not only for mitigating the risks related to osteoporosis, but slowing down or even reversing bone density loss. With a beautiful combination of weight-bearing exercises, muscle-strengthening via resistance training and balance, Pilates Reformer environment is a great way to treat and also prevent bone density loss.
We love working with Dorothy in a clinical Pilates setup. Her humor and laughter are contagious. Consistently attending one session every week and diligently doing her “Pilates home work” every day, in only few weeks, Dorothy’s hip pain disappeared. She is getting better every day, sleeps better and is enjoying more her gardening activities. Inspired by her determination and seeing her results we have decided to focus this month’s Pilates sessions to stronger, healthier bones thus helping all our customer understand and prevent the osteoporosis disease.
