Do you have Osteoporosis? If the answer is yes, you need to keep your spine straight when you do Pilates. Shari Berkowitz explains why and takes you through a core strengthening, body elongating workout that will build support for your spine and help to prevent your bones from collapsing against each other. Repeat daily and in just a few sessions you’ll notice a difference in your posture, balance and ease of movement. Visit Shari for teacher training, workshops and lessons at The Vertical Workshop. Our thanks to Shari’s student Roccio Cárceles and The Contrology Cohort in New York City where this was filmed.
