BONES FOR LIFE – A program for facilitating function through Alignment, Pressure and Rhythm and cultivating strength through weight bearing posture. Created by Ruthy Alon, based on Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais’ approach to somatic learning
Bones for Life® is a comprehensive movement-based program for the health of the skeletal system. The Bones for Life® program offers a new way of thinking about movement at both the personal and professional level; it involves rewiring our brain to change inefficient habits in our postures and in our ways of movement. The strategies learned provide an entirely new experience of movement using the skeletal and muscular anatomy allowing deeper insights into the inter-connectedness or “domino-like”transmission of weight bearing forces. Bones for Life® program teaches effective self-treatment strategies to safely transmit weight bearing forces from head to toe without the compression, or loss and deviation that can come from our naturally acquired habits due to old injuries, disease states or chronic areas of immobility. Throughout the Bones for Life® program we work to recreate the body’s capacity for weight-bearing and dynamic walking with a rhythm and spring intended to offset gravity and enhancing mobility. The basic building blocks of Bones for Life® not only increase the liveliness of our day-to-day activities but actually create a stronger foundation for our supporting frame, and reducing the risk of osteoporosis.
