Leon Mathieu Senior Center-420 Main Street Pawtucket, R.I. 02860 – Bone Builders is an innovative community-based program designed to promote bone health and overall well-being for both men and women. Dr. Miriam Nelson developed the program based on her research at Tufts University. Dr. Nelson has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show, the Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, Fresh Air, and the Discovery Channel to explain the benefits of the program. She has authored a number of international best-selling books including Strong Women Strong Bones, Strong Women and Men Beat Arthritis, and others.
BoneBuilders of RI is fully supported by The Village at Waterman Lake, whose co-owner, Diane Caruso, has been a BoneBuilder volunteer, class leader and organizer for more than ten years. The program is designed to be easily modified for each individual participant. The use of multiple weight sizes allows participants to start in their comfortable range of exertion and steadily progress as they get more comfortable with their ability.
The BoneBuilders of RI class at Leon Mathieu Senior Center will be led by Susan Bayley, a Master Trainer and student of Diane Caruso. Susan has been leading BoneBuilder classes since 2013. A student of yoga for more than 20 years, she has been leading yoga classes since 2008.
Classes at the L.M.S.C will begin on Tuesday, September 3rd at 9:30 a.m. Classes are free to Senior Members. Program made possible by the Bristol County Savings. If you are interested in participating in this program, please call the Senior Center 401-728-7582 or visit us at 420 Main Street Pawtucket, R.I. 02860 (2nd floor office).
