Pink Ribbon Pilates is designed to specifically address the needs and challenges facing everyone recovering from cancer-related surgery.
The exercises are designed to show you how to progressively stretch and strengthen your shoulders, chest and back to regain full range of movement and reduce risk of lymphedema.
In addition to the purely physical benefits already outlined, Pink Ribbon Pilates will help to improve your posture, alleviate your pain, reduce stress, and enhance your energy levels.
Whether you are recovering from recent surgery or are many years post-surgery, Pilates is suitable for you.
Exercises are generally performed on a mat. Flex bands and lightweight dumbbells may be used to add resistance to the exercises.
