PINK PILATES Level 1 is offered at NO COST for women recently diagnosed with breast cancer, recovering from surgery, currently in ongoing treatment, and those who have been part of our PINK PILATES program for under one year.

The 9-week workshop includes a weekly class that offers rehabilitative help in the breast cancer recovery process; inspiring hope and restoring movement. The class offers a specialized program; one that focuses on gradually increasing range of motion through the shoulders and strengthening the back. Each session will help to gently stretch and strengthen the shoulder, chest, back, and abdominal muscles, allowing women to regain and/or maintain a full range of motion to those areas affected by breast cancer and surgery.

The weekly classes are held in Ballet Austin’s beautiful center for dance and community wellness located at 501 W. 3rd St in downtown Austin, a non-medical, happy, mainstream environment that allows for encouragement and rehabilitation.
