Pink Pilates Post-Operative Workshop

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Consider a donation to support this program!

Ballet Austin's Pink Pilates is a post-operative exercise and rehabilitative program for women recovering from breast cancer.

More than just exercise, we offer care, confidence-building, encouragement, support, and a warm and friendly environment. The weekly class is held in our beautiful center for dance and community wellness, a non-medical, happy, mainstream environment that allows for encouragement and rehabilitation. We offer PINK PILATES at NO COST to women recovering from breast cancer.

The Pink Pilates Program will help stretch and strengthen the shoulder, chest, back, and abdominal muscles, allowing women to regain full range of motion to those areas affected by breast cancer surgery.

This program is suitable for women recovering from a recent surgery or from several years ago. It is recommended that women wait 4-6 weeks post op before enrolling in the course.

Each class will offer strengthening, self-esteem and quality of life to breast cancer survivors. The program works in conjunction with your doctor's recommendations for an exercise program.

We look forward to being a part of your full recovery.

While there is no cost to breast cancer survivors, REGISTRATION is required ahead of time to participate.

Workshops are held at Ballet Austin's Butler Dance Education Center in downtown Austin.
