Clients say the darnedest things! One of my clients came into her session one day and said, “I’m only 61 — but my knees feel like they are 81!” This is a very common feeling, but it scares me a little. I get worried because so many people accept this as a natural part of aging, and don’t take action to try and prevent or minimize it. Many people just think that there is nothing they can do about it. That’s exactly why i created “Exercises for Happy, Healthy Knees”.
Healthy knees are important to keep us active and moving. You’ll learn strategies and exercises to strengthen the muscles that support your knee joint that can easily be added into your movement time. You do not need any Pilates experience to take this workshop!
Strong healthy knees allow you to safely get to the ground and back up when you are planting, pulling weeds or even cleaning the leftover yard crud so that your flowers have a clean space to grow! Strong healthy knees also help you get to the ground and back up to play with your grandchildren!
Strong healthy knees allow you to properly squat to pick up items like bags of potting soil, pots and planters. This keeps your low back protected from undue strain.
Strong, healthy knees are able to adapt easily to uneven terrain and are key for maintaining your balance when doing any outdoor activities.
You do not need any previous Pilates experience to benefit from this workshop.
This workshop is for you if:
- You have knee pain when climbing or descending stairs.
- Your have arthritis in your knees.
- You have knee pain that limits any of your activities.
- Getting down to the floor and back up is a challenge and you often feel your knees.
Please note: If you have undiagnosed knee pain we always suggest talking to your doctor or physical therapist before starting an exercise program!!
