Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Recovery Programme
I am proud to announce that I am one of the few Rehabilitative Breast Cancer Exercise Specialist Instructors in the UK.
The Pink Ribbon Program is a Pilates Based recovery program for those who have had surgery for breast cancer. Exercise is an important part of your treatment and recovery.
The program is designed in progressive phases with exercise sessions twice a week for 6 weeks. The 1-2-1 sessions are 30 min long and provide an individualised program at the pace and level that suits you and takes into account your ability and how you feel on the day. In addition to the session you will receive an exercise booklet and band to perform the exercises on a daily basis which allows you to take control and feel pro-active about your own recovery.
