Wonderfully presented workshop! Appreciated how clear everything was presented and the follow through throughout the workshop. Also enjoyed the blend of hearing comments from both a PT and movement teacher. I have yet to get to a Movement Science Made Simple workshop (hope to soon) so I greatly appreciate Pilates Anytime, Cara and Jeremy letting us get a glimpse into their work!! Thank you all!
Hi Bonnie, Thanks for watching and this kind note. I would love to see you some day again. Jeremy and I are teaching at the Balanced Body rehab summit in AZ this spring. I can't remember where you live but I feel like it is AZ? If so maybe you can come to that. Big hugs.

Close Cara....NV!! Thanks for letting me know!!
Hi Cara and Jeremy, thank you!
Would you elaborate a bit on how osteoporosis or osteopenia clients need to proceed with neck strengthening exercises? I see a huge need for more strength with my osteoP clients but they have a fear instilled by Drs, PTs and partial information on the subject. If they have been diagnosed with osteoporosis in another part of the skeleton is flexion contraindicated with the cervical spine?
Would love to see an equipment workshop on the subject incorporating your Cervical Powerhouse ideas!
