Pink Pilates Post-operative Workshop
More than just exercise, we offer care, confidence-building, encouragement, support, and a warm and friendly environment.
PINK PILATES is now offered at two levels beginning in January 2020.
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. Please register for each workshop. (See dates below starting in January 2020)
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. (See dates below starting in January 2020)
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.
The Pink Pilates program works in conjunction with your doctor’s or physical therapist’s recommendation for an exercise program.
We look forward to being a part of your full recovery.
REGISTRATION is required ahead of time to participate.
Workshops are held at Ballet Austin’s Butler Dance Education Center in downtown Austin.
