What Other People are Saying

Beth Begelman’s Pilates Mat Program for Osteoporosis Clients: Guidelines and Exercises for the Pilates Professional and Standing Pilates Program for Osteoporosis Clients together offer a clear and concise guide to osteoporosis specific strengthening exercises for Pilates teachers. The photos are clear, the instructions easy to understand, and the brief explanation of this insidious bone depleting disease will help Pilates teachers understand what their clients are experiencing. Books like this are very important given the rising numbers of women (and men) with low bone density. Plus, so many traditional Pilates mat exercises are in forward thoracic flexion that it is crucial to have guides like this before moving forward with mat training for osteoporotic clients. With a total of 35 exercises there is enough material here for a creative instructor to put together challenging yet safe workouts for anyone with low bone density. Highly recommended!

The new programs from PilatesDigest, Pilates Mat Program for Osteoporosis Clients and Standing Pilates Program for Osteoporosis Clients are a wonderful new resource for Pilates Mat teachers. All of the information, from the definition of the disease and its risk factors to the exercise programs, is described very clearly. I particularly like the way each exercise is presented: clear photographs along with an excellent description of the exercise including the focus, purpose, instruction and modifications for each one. These books show that clients with osteoporosis can enjoy a safe and challenging Pilates Mat Workout that can improve bone density and balance!
