The Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital will offer a free six-week Pilates program specifically designed for breast cancer survivors in June.
Pink Ribbon Pilates is a gentle, staged program for breast cancer survivors who are six weeks post-operative or have received surgeon's approval to begin therapeutic exercise. It can also be beneficial to survivors who are beyond the post-operative period, but still experience problems with range of motion or exercise.
Led by certified Stott Pilates and Pink Ribbon Program Instructor Brenda Martin, the program will be held from 6-7 p.m. on June 18, July 2, 16, 23, and 30, and Aug 6 at the Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital, 350 Seymour Ave., Derby. Each participant will receive the Pink Ribbon Pilates manual containing all of the exercises as well as a flex band to incorporate into the routine.
Pre-registration is required and space is limited to eight participants. Call 203-732-1260 to sign up.
