A customized & compassionate Pilates program for your mind & body... Designed for breast cancer patients undergoing treatment, by someone who has been there and done that.
As a breast cancer survivor, your state of mind can be your worst enemy, but it can also be your greatest ally. Scientific studies reveal that how you think, feel, react and behave in response to having cancer affects your recovery.
Diane G. is a breast cancer survivor and living testament to the profound results of Pilates. It's not an exaggeration when she says, "Cancer changed my life, and my new life changed my Cancer". Her diagnosis drew “the line in the sand” and created the opportunity for an extraordinary career and lifestyle change. "After the initial disbelief, fear and anxiety, my inner voice said, 'Thus far and no further' to my old ways… the consistent feeling of anger and resentment about my stressful and unfulfilling job and lack of time I gave myself for health, fun, relaxation and pleasure." Three months after her diagnosis, and after re-examining what was important to her, she embarked upon her 6 weeks of daily radiation treatments... And concurrently began a full-time, 450 hour intensive training and study program to become a Certified Pilates Instructor. "My intensive Pilates practice is what gave me the mental focus on something very positive…and didn't allow me to sit around and feel sorry for myself, which I think is my worst enemy! It also greatly improved my strength, endurance, and stamina which was tremendously helpful in getting me through my radiation treatments. Pilates was a tremendous counterbalance to the physical, emotional and spiritual side effects from radiation treatments. It was the ultimate silver lining I found on the journey to recovery.”
