Pink Pilates Post-operative Workout for Breast Cancer Survivors
Pilates offers a gentle and careful way to venture back toward physical and emotional health.
More than just exercise, our Pink Pilates Program offers care, confidence-building, encouragement, support, and a warm and friendly environment.
Besides the physical benefits of strengthening the body through Pilates, meeting and healing together with other survivors allows you to give your mind, body, and spirit some positive TLC. Committed to care both in person and online.

Pink Pilates Post-operative Workshops for Breast Cancer Survivors
We look forward to when we can be back on site with both levels of Pink Pilates workshops.
WHEN WORKSHOPS RETURN:
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. Level 1 is specifically to offer rehabilitative help in the breast cancer recovery process; inspiring hope and restoring movement. The Pink Pilates Level 1 workshop works in conjunction with your doctor’s or physical therapist’s recommendation for an exercise program. Please register for each workshop.
PINK PILATES Level 2 is a Continuing Breast Cancer Recovery Workshop for those who have participated in ongoing PINK PILATES classes, and those who are further along in their recovery from breast cancer, and/or not currently in treatment. PINK PILATES Level 2 offers ongoing exercise and support; inspiring hope and maintaining strength and movement. This workshop for continuing participants is offered at a LOW COST.
The weekly classes are held in Ballet Austin’s beautiful center for dance and community wellness, a non-medical, happy, mainstream environment that allows for encouragement and rehabilitation.
Pink Pilates helps 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.
We look forward to being a part of your full recovery.
Workshops are held at Ballet Austin’s Butler Dance Education Center in downtown Austin.
