Osteopenia Recovery

I did pilates for several years, a long time ago, knowing that my hyper-mobile body loved it!  For no particular reason, I stopped. Around the time I was 70-71 I realized I had lost 1 1/2 inches of my height 5 and was diagnosed with osteopenia,degenerative discs and arthritis, so started having regular bone scans.  A little over a year ago, I decided to try pilates again to see if it would be helpful and also as a challenge to see if I could still do it at my age. I was a little shaky when I started out, remembering the various exercises, but my body didn’t necessarily want to move that way.  I’ve slowly worked my way up to the 1.5 class, having developed much better balance and control. As I approach my 75th birthday in July, I’m thrilled to report that I’ve gained a full inch of height and my bone scans are improving with no meds. And my body feels years younger. Lencola has been very encouraging and helpful.  I LOVE pilates!!! – Ann
