Creating healthy, stronger bones through natural movement

The Bones for Life®
Program
 
Bones for Life is a body movement program based on the work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais.  Originally designed to halt and even reverse the deterioration of bone tissue, the program uses mindful exploration, pressure, rhythm, and vibration with particular focus on alignment, finding strength through organization thus  stimulating bone health.  It is the perfect way for anyone to find both their freedom of movement as well as their balance and stability in a way that directly integrates into daily life activities.

A critical component of the program is habituating students to the ability to fall safety. This is developed slowly through the use of the natural form of the spiral. Current studies posit that the ability to move and to fall safely has more impact on the health of bones than bone density. Utilizing this movement of the spiral in simple daily activities brings that availability to our system when needed.  Processes to develop the movements in this program  reduce tension, enhanced posture, improved coordination, increased flexibility, more stability, and.greater general comfort.
