With cases of Osteoporosis on the rise, it is vital that we Pilates teachers know how to handle this growing clientele. With spinal flexion off the table, you must get creative with the exercises to still bring a well-rounded practice to these clients. The equipment is very helpful in this endeavor. And any exercises in which the legs are articulating separately and moving through different tasks is an excellent challenge. You want to cue the pelvis, torso, head, and neck just the same as you would with any clients with feet in straps. It is advantageous to use a lighter spring tension to bring much needed work and timing to the abdominal walls, which can be missed due to the lack of ab curling.

Check out the video below for a detailed demonstration.

Thanks for watching!
