New York, NY (PRWEB) September 15, 2010
Gwyneth Paltrow reminded the world that bone issues are not just for the elderly when she announced this summer at age 37 that she has the precursor to osteoporosis. Bone health expert Rebekah Rotstein explains what this means for the rest of us when she brings her toolkit of osteoporosis prevention and treatment tips to a leading New York studio, Core Pilates NYC, Saturday, September 25th, for a two-part workshop for both the public and exercise professionals.
This important workshop demystifies the facts of bone health and could not come at a better time. Commercials for osteoporosis medications flood television advertising, leaving consumers wondering what to do to prevent the condition of bone fragility.
The workshop is split into two parts:
1- "Preventing and Addressing Osteoporosis" discusses bone health and offers exercises on how to protect the skeleton. This first hour is open to the general public.
2- "Bone-ing Up On Strength" continues the remainder of the afternoon for Pilates and exercise instructors and anyone looking for a deeper understanding of movement that targets bones. It will allow them to:
- Discover bone-building techniques
- Identify exercises to avoid for clients with osteoporosis
- Practice fracture-prevention methods
"Bone health is a vital matter for people of all ages -- this is not just a concern for your mother or grandmother," says Rebekah Rotstein, who teaches workshops around the country and overseas about osteoporosis and exercise. "People train their muscles -- it's time they learn to train their bones."
Part 1 lasts one hour (3:30 to 4:30pm) and costs $45.
The full five-hour workshop of Part 1 and 2 (3:30 - 8:30pm) costs $250.
