Pink Pilates is dedicated to improving the quality of life and wellbeing of women diagnosed with cancer. The Pink Pilates programme has been specifically designed to help women diagnosed with cancer regain their physical strength, improve their body confidence and incorporate exercise into their lifestyle.
Pink Pilates is more than an exercise regime – it is a personalised therapeutic programme that is offered to women recovering from cancer surgery and related treatment. All women with cancer are eligible to participate in the Pink Pilates Programme, from the newly diagnosed to women 25+ years after their initial cancer diagnosis. For each woman, the Pink Pilates Programme consists of a course of 10 individually designed and delivered treatment sessions with a qualified physiotherapist. It is suitable after any type of cancer surgery or treatment and accommodates all fitness levels. It is designed to facilitate recovery from any cancer surgery including mastectomy, colorectal surgery, oophorectomy and breast reconstructive surgery including TRAM flap, LAT flap and breast implant reconstruction. The programme addresses the physical conditions and side effects of chemotherapy, radiation and hormone therapy. It can also help reduce the risks of treatment-related side effects such as lymphoedema, shoulder problems, scar tissue formation, fatigue, and weight gain.
