Improve bone health through self-management. The Osteo-cise class offered at Pali Momi Women's Center will help to improve your posture, gait, balance and core strength, and reduce back pain.

This 6-week series is taught by Kapi'olani's Bone Health Program exercise physiologist Marcie Nowack, a former University of Hawai‘i volleyball standout. If you are diagnosed with or at risk for osteoporosis, she will help you safely build muscle strength and flexibility.

The Osteo-cise class is part of the Bone Health Program aimed at prevention and management of osteoporosis. The philosophy behind Osteo-cise is that not just muscle but also bones gain strength from exercise..

Geared to beginners, the 45-minute, low-impact regimen is one that anyone can handle. It involves a lot of gentle stretching and muscle-strengthening techniques.

To register or to make an appointment for a bone density scan to see where you stand in regard to osteoporosis, call (808) 535-7733.
