Get back to thriving!
Our Pink Power program is a Pilates-based exercise program designed specifically for women after breast cancer surgery. The goal of the Pink Power Program is to ensure that every person has the ability to regain a sense of well being lost through the process of diagnosis, surgery and recovery. This can be achieved in part through an exercise program designed for the specific needs and challenges after breast cancer surgery. Movement after surgery is a key component often missing in the treatment of breast cancer. The Pilates Pink Power Program was created to safely enhance recovery. The program helps to gradually stretch and strengthen the shoulders, chest and back muscles using appropriate mat and Pilates Apparatus. Participants may significantly improve range of motion and strength to those areas most affected by breast cancer surgery, treatment and reconstruction.
This program is suitable whether your surgery was recent or several years ago, and accommodates all fitness levels. Our goal at the studio is to help you restore your normal ranges of motion and strength so you can transition to a regular exercise program, whether it be at our studio, the gym or in your own home.
