The Pink Ribbon Program was developed by a survivor for survivors. It is a post operative, Pilates based, recovery program. The 8 week program is comprised of two 30 minute sessions a week, with a limit of 4 participants per 8 week block. This program is designed to enhance recovery for breast cancer patients aiding to help regain mobility, and improve strength and posture. Using the principles of the Pilates method, our training in Pilates along with our knowledge of biomechanics, we teach movement that focuses on stretching and strengthening; shoulder, chest and back muscles allowing you to improve range of motion and strength to those areas most affected by breast cancer surgery, treatment and reconstruction.
There is also a focus around building core strength using breath. You are therefore able to better support your upper body strength, particularly if your abdominal muscles were compromised in relation to reconstruction surgery.
