Small Group Sessions For Osteoporosis

The small group sessions of maximum three people is an opportunity to learn in a very private and almost one-on-one environment. Participants can join with their friends or anyone who is interested to join a group. We meet for three two-hour-long sessions (three consecutive weeks) plus one hour review session. Dates and times can be coordinated according to the group's need. The meetings can either be held inside the Mt Tam Racquet Club or at Marion's practice in San Rafael. Groups can form at any time.This set-up provides greater flexibility for scheduling as well as more individual attention compared to a larger workshop.

Bones Fit Mini Group: this program is an Osteoporosis prevention and bone health workshop. Participants  learn the key principles of bone strength including power posture, resistance and weight-bearing exercise as well as stretching. The focus is on active exercise with custom-tailored instructions depending on each participant's needs. The class format provides ample individual instruction.
Written manual and resistance band included.
