Bones for Life at ER-Jewish Community Center
March-May 2015

Date and time

Two 9-Week Series on Tuesdays
March 24–May 19, 2015
10:30 a.m.–11:30 a.m.


Bones for Life® (BFL) is a program based on the premise that bone strength is stimulated through natural movement and weight-bearing posture.  It was developed by Ruthy Alon, and is based on Moshe Feldenkrais’ teachings for the re-education of movement habits.

Bones for Life training teaches you safe, non-jarring exercises, through gentle, springy, weight-bearing motions.  It helps to stimulate bone health, improves skeletal alignment, posture, and balance.iStock_000017831931XSmall

“Natural movement, which resonates through every part of the body, integrates them all into graceful harmony. It organizes the body both for stability and flexibility. It inspires trust in the bones as well as in the freedom of the joints. The joy which emerges in performing vigorous movements with ease and success is a constant companion to the dynamic activity. I call this joy, biological optimism. This biological optimism in regaining natural movement is the real benefit of the program; strengthening the bones is the bonus.”     —Ruthy Alon


Bring a yoga mat, a clean pair of socks and a beach towel.
