Sustainable Movement & Authentic Teaching
your free guide to 5 moves you need for osteoporosis
Want to move well but not sure where to start?
I’ve got a solution for you!
Whether you’re new to movement and exercise, have been stopped by injury or pain or you’re a lifelong athlete newly adapting to osteoporosis modifications, start with these basics to make all your exercises and your everyday life more effective.
These are the 5 basics that everyone with osteoporosis (or bone density concerns) needs to work on every day:
- Spinal unloading
- Joint mobility
- Core (especially upper back) strength
- Balance and agility
- Spine-sparing, bone-safe hip strength for everyday tasks
These are the fundamental exercises that make life more comfortable, that make progressive weight training more effective and that help avoid falls and fall-related fractures.
I’m Alison and not only do I have 20 years of experience as a Pilates and natural movement teacher, I have osteoporosis too!
These are part of my everyday routine and they keep me limber and aware of how and when I’m using my spine.

I’m the owner of Boomerang Pilates and creator of the Move SMART program. I love to teach people how to take charge of their movement and feel confident and joyful regardless of age, experience or bone density!
I have osteoporosis myself, so you can be sure that everything I teach is filtered through a lens of determination, sensible precautions and a conviction that we can move well throughout our lives!
