Thank you for this Sherri. Is it ok to give the PDF to clients or is this for our personal use only?

This is fabulous! Not just useful for osteoporosis but very enlightening about how we can protect our backs in general and relate our exercise to functional movement.
Thank you Sherri.

Thank you for your positive feedback everyone. Yes, please share the PDF with your clients!
This is awesome. I love your videos Sherri. I have been teaching Chair Pilates at my church and your videos have all of my sessions in helping seniors from falling and getting hurt.
I love this! I am an occupational therapist and I love the prop use for context
Very helpful and useful information, can we have some very basic strengthening videos with advanced osteoporosis in mind?
Wish there was a chapter for putting on shoes. . .
Hi Maggie We did Gil a donning shoe segment. It’s not there? Sherri
Maybe it’s within one of these that’s titled something different...
