Breast Cancer Awareness Month


pink ribbon

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The most important thing you can do is do a monthly breast exam and do a mammogram as soon as your doctor recommends it.

As a Post Rehabilitative Breast Cancer Exercise Specialist through The Pink Ribbon Program I am able to develop a specific Pilates exercise program to fulfill the needs of survivors.  Here are a few benefits of this specific Pilates based program:

Note this is a specific exercise protocol form of Pilates training.

Pilates is beneficial to breast cancer survivors as well as those undergoing chemotherapy who would like to regain strength. These are just a few benefits to be gained from this specialized program.

  • improves lymphatic drainage with proper breathing techniques
  • restores overall range of motion, flexibility, strength and endurance
  • restores  postural alignment and balance
  • enhances core strength and endurance
  • improved circulation

As an instructor my goal is to help you get back to your everyday routines.
