Tsawwassen Wellness Centre is offering a free workshop on exercising safely with osteoporosis later this month.

With one in two women and one in three men being diagnosed with osteoporosis, it is critical that we understand what it is and how to take care of ourselves. Not just exercise, but weight bearing exercise is important to building bone density and developing muscle to support our bones and improve balance to prevent falls. This workshop follows a research-supported design of exercises, making it an entire system of bone and joint health.

The workshop, hosted by physical therapist Tricia Prevost and Tsawwassen Wellness Centre owner Linda Mallard, runs Thursday, July 25 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Space is limited. Pre-register by calling 604-943-8823.
