Gain Confidence In Balance and Walking.

Instead of feeling healthy, these all-too-common problems drag people down:

Unfortunately, life gets increasingly hard

… when such issues go unaddressed.

An avalanche of research studies show that lack of walking contributes to disease, including pain, osteoarthritis, dementia, depression, and many other conditions. When it is easier to move, we move more. But it isn’t just about quantity.

Did you know...
You can WALK yourself into DISEASE
You can WALK yourself into HEALTH?

Poor quality walking not only leads to less walking and decreased enjoyment, it also leads to bone and joint problems and increased fall and fracture risk.

“I’ve been in the field of health and wellness for over 47 years. I’m not easily impressed. I've also had a lot of accidents and injuries.

Now I have young grandchildren and I want to do things with them. I can get up and down from the floor, but I wanna run! Even as a Feldenkrais practitioner and Physical Therapist, there's always the fear of falling. I feel like Bones for Life has freed me from that fear."

"When I'm running with either my new little puppy dog or my grandson, I'm feeling every bit of how my foot is on the ground. It's so practical. 
Beth Rubenstein
Physical Therapist, Feldenkrais Practitioner

Have you tried exercise programs and became injured? 

Or had an instructor that didn’t know how to pace the class to your needs?

When this happens, people become discouraged and often just quit trying. But Bones for Life® is an approach that trusts YOU to know what is right for you. We know that when you are given quality information and the opportunity to make your own movement decisions, you will make great ones that will positively affect your health today and tomorrow.

Are you ready to explore quality movement through somatic learning?

Bones for Life, created by Ruthy Alon, is based in the work of Moshe Feldenkrais. Alon kept the innate power of engaging neuroplasticity for change while creating 90 streamlined movement processes that go to the heart of dynamic postural balance which is essential to weight-bearing bone health, walking, and reducing fall risk.

Somatic learning is to learn from the inside out. We are born with this ability. Yet using this inborn intelligence is often missing in today’s rehab and fitness worlds, and if we are truthful, from adult experience in general.

Body intelligence together with cognitive intelligence defines a usable path towards function and vitality. Bones for Life® is a practical, available, and transportable somatic education approach that does just that.
I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to be part of Bones For Life. It has been so helpful and mind expanding. I can’t believe the journey I am on.

How Do The Classes Work?

Our Bones for Life Immersions are offered on-line. You don’t need to leave your home or office. And we offer several times per week to choose from.

  • Sessions are live! You will join the instructors via Zoom. 
  • Interactive sessions. We will stop periodically for questions and check-ins. This means you can be heard. And you can learn from other students too.
  • Exercises are Accessible. Done in sitting, standing and lying on a mat. Can’t get to the floor? You can even use your bed.
  • Replays! If you can’t make a class you can watch on replay. But there is more than that. You can watch these replays for weeks, months and years to come. 
  • Searchable, usable replays. Your replays will be housed on our platform which has incredible features. Each replay is divided into chapters making it easy to do a little today, a little tomorrow.  When you want to do that one exercise called SILKEN SCARF, you can search for it. You recall a story about a Russian space engineer, you can search for it. 

Stop the gravitational pull!

Make gravity an ally and find power in standing and walking.

Instead of feeling pulled down by gravity, you will learn to use it to your advantage. You stand tall. You are powerful. You feel vibrant and ready for the day. What’s on your schedule today? You can do it!

Life goes by quickly. Health declines when we aren’t paying attention but it can also improve with the right approach. Bones for Life can help you turn that diagnosis around to get the most from your body.

"My patients are so scared of re-fracturing that it takes me a very long time to get them comfortable even trying new things. My osteoporosis patients move with less fear and feel that they are in total control. That's huge. My patients LOVE this work.
Amy Morris
Physical therapist specializing in scoliosis, osteoporosis, and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)

Today is the day to start making a positive difference.

We often hear that after the first couple of classes students are already showing their friends and family how to bounce on heels to improve bone health, ways to easily get up and down from a chair or the ground, or how to align for better posture. Why? Because when something improves our lives, we naturally want to share it.

Bones for Life develops your awareness of pressure and how it travels through your body. Through its stimulating, weight-bearing movements, you will rapidly reorganize into increasingly higher potential.

Movements are taught in a variety of positions. We start in the safety of lying down, returning to sensation and finding our alignment in relation to the floor (but you can use a bed if you need to). Then we move to supported standing, then unsupported upright and finally more dynamic balance challenges.

“I hurt a lot less than I did. When I get up, I ask myself, What is it that I want right now? I might focus on my ribs that allow me to breathe and allow me to move more freely. It's really gentle. If I have 15 minutes, I can do a quick Bones for Life process. I can use it in response to what my need is at the time. I had gotten used to living with a 30-year-old back injury, but I noticed, it doesn't hurt anymore.”

Can you imagine your life a year from now?

We can. Because your instructors have felt the change in their own lives. And because of what past students like – Sharana have told us. 

“I learned so much from Bones for Life that I could not learn from several PTs and other classes. These changes increased my comfort and fun level in my daily life. My back no longer hurts with my daily hour-long walk.

I can quickly do many of the processes almost anywhere and anytime, even on my speed walk. Movement is important and essential, especially as my PT said yesterday with my severe scoliosis. If I was not moving, he said I would be much worse and maybe need surgery.
Sharana Mueller
Completed Immersions 1-3
“I had a severe injury that wasn’t healing. When I started bouncing on heels, (a Bones for Life exercise) I learned just a little tap was extremely helpful! I could do that while brushing my teeth or drying myself off in the shower. It made such a difference doing bouncing on heels in the morning and in the evening. If it sounds like I’m a believer, it’s because I am a believer.”

NEED NEW TESTIMONIAL “Continuing with Bones For Life, Teacher's Certification was one of the best decisions I ever made, both for my professional and personal growth.

It gave me confidence as a teacher and brought my observation skills to a new level. It provided a sense of belonging to a lineage and connection to a professional community. It unleashed my creativity and opened a new perspective on what I wanted to do and how. It inspired, motivated, and transformed me on so many levels that I'm still processing that...I truly can say I feel it in my bones!
Natalia Waldman
Certified Feldenkrais Teacher, Certified Bones for Life Teacher

We teach in an immersive way with each exploration building on the last. Immersive learning helps facilitate rapid and effective change because the student doesn’t immediately return to their old habits.  The pace is set to be appropriate through discussion, breaks, and permission for each student to claim their right to sit back anytime they need to. Claiming this right is learning too!

Each immersion builds on the last and is designed for the average person  who wants to upgrade their personal health. Immersions 2 and 3 may be too challenging for someone has been sedentary or unable to move about freely for a long period of time. 

Together, our three Bones for Life Immersions provide a comprehensive program for musculoskeletal health.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Bones for Life program is designed to provide a movement answer to the problem of bone deterioration. The learning principles behind the Feldenkrais Method are interpreted in a different way so they engage and stimulate the bones to function in a counter-gravity way. We challenge you to move in new ways and to learn how to adapt healthily and seamlessly.

All Immersions sure are! Your sessions will be live and replays can be accessed on our platform. If you move into the Teacher Training, the last week will be IN PERSON and that is important to know. Only a pandemic would change that.

Yes and yes! All the videos, audio, and transcripts can be viewed from any of those platforms.

No. Videos will need to be accessed online. You can download audio. And transcripts are provided via artificial intelligence—meaning there will be errors—hopefully, funny ones that are still understandable.

We accept all major credit cards and PayPal. Should you have any problems with your payment: please contact us. 

We want to facilitate growth and know cost can sometimes be an issue. We are pleased to offer a limited number of partial scholarships based on need. Please read our scholarship policy and apply here.

If you do the first immersion (which includes taking care of yourself and working at your own pace) and don’t experience improvement, we will refund your purchase. This needs to be requested by March 29 and will include a review of attendance or use of replays, as well as a conversation about your experience. No refunds will be issued after that time.

This purchase gives you right to use these recordings for your own personal or professional growth. You are not authorized to share them with anyone else.
