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.

Pink Pilates Women – the emotional and social support

Social support has been found to be correlated with positive treatment outcomes for women diagnosed with breast cancer. Social and emotional connections can significantly reduce stress emanating as well as improve emotional well-being.
