Bone Building in the Garden
Perthshire looks amazing right now with the beautiful autumn colours. I’ve spent the last couple of weekends putting the garden to bed: covering outside furniture, protecting delicate plants and raking up the fallen leaves, not to mention lifting heavy plant pots and pushing a loaded wheel barrow uphill. All good bone building exercise. I want to be strong and fit to carry on doing these movements when I’m 90 (God willing)! After all age is just a number.
The osteoporosis workshop in September was a huge success. It was a joy to work with such a lovely small group of women on techniques to improve bone health. Topics covered included demystifying medication, nutrition for building bone, and exercises for fracture prevention. The key lesson is that the sooner you start a bone building diet and exercise regime, the better, but it’s never too late to start improving bone health.
I will be running another osteoporosis workshop in the new year, and if you are interested in attending please let me know. I will also be developing more workshops tackling specific issues: if you have any suggestions for topics you’d like me to focus on, get in touch!
I”m not a big user of social media in my personal life, but I do love how these platforms have opened up access to a wealth of expertise and connected health practitioners with followers around the world. What a wonderful resource for us all.
Pilates on Tay is on Facebook, Twitter and now Instagram. I’ll regularly be posting what interests me, insight from classes, nutritional advice, and anything else I think will support the health and wellbeing of my clients. I’d really appreciate it if you use any of the above platforms that you could “like” and “share” any of our postings that you enjoy.
Since I generally keep my personal news offline, many of you may not yet have heard my recent news: I now have twin granddaughters who were born 10 weeks early. They are now 7 weeks old and are doing really well. 🙂
