This is part of the ‘Movement Intelligence’ programme, pioneered by Ruthy Alon.

Life today can be full of rush, aches and pains, sore muscles and bones. These classes give gentle movements to help release tension and free you up from poor postural habits, reminding your body of the most efficient way to walk and sit with less effort. Re-find the best posture for you. Exercises to help strengthen bones, improve bone density, and bring rhythm, flexibility, grace, energy and flow into your body and your life.

Do you have problems with knees, shoulders, hips, wrists?

Is there a part of your body you would like to improve?

Come and book in for a ‘Bones for Life Day’ at the Open Pathway Retreat Centre & Training College.

Ring to speak to Christy or email to book or to discuss your needs.


As a 65 year old woman with some arthritis, joint tightness, aches and a past broken wrist, I have found Bones For Life very beneficial. The deceptively simple and rhythmical exercises, which I practice regularly, have released joints and muscles. I am moving easier and more relaxed. It’s like my body is remembering how to function well. I recommend Bones For Life to anyone of any age who wants to improve their day-to-day life.  B, November 2019

Bones For Life exercises have bought greater mobility and less pain to my body and joints. It feels like my body is remembering how to move well. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to improve how their body works and feels. – R, October 2019

Parenting the Elderly

Please ask for dates ~ for either at the Centre or online.

How do we care for our parents, clients, friends and other relatives as they come to need help in everyday matters? How do we make sure they have an enjoyable life, independent as far as possible ~ and still look after ourselves, younger family and partners? And what about our jobs?

This online Course will address the many questions that arise for us ~ it will help us to go beyond the ‘shoulds’ and ‘oughts’, keep our hearts open and our lives in balance.

Then everyone can make the choices that are best for them and all will benefit.

Natural Energy Therapy Training Course – 22nd to 30th August 2020

2020 Intake: 22nd to 30th August 2020

We hear how many people wish to take this Course but cannot manage two weeks a year off work or family commitments, so the new dates reflect this and give the same Training within two weekends and the week in-between. There will be home study and online or phone check-ins in between Modules 2 and 3 and also between 4 and 5. Do contact us to talk over your Training needs.

Natural Energy Therapy Training gives a whole new way of looking after your own energy and that of your family and friends in ordinary everyday life, as well as leading to a professional qualification, if you wish it.
