Callanetics
Hi Doc
I am a 35 year old woman of average health, but with a chronic lower back problem. I found a couple of years ago that doing Callanetics classes was very beneficial but the person offering them in my area (Fourways, Jhb) stopped some time back, and no gyms or anyone I know of seems to offer this anymore.

Is there a Callanetics Association of SA or teachers organisation or indeed anyone who can put me in touch with a teacher offering classes in my area?

Plse advise

Many thanks

Rose

Hi Rose

Hope these contacts will be of help. I would also suggest trying out Pilates as an alternative if you say you have a back problem and can not find a callanetics instructor close by. Pilates is a form of exercise that concentrates on core stability and control as well as strengtheing and stretching of your muscles.
