Breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer amongst women and is more prevalent after the age of 50. Though less common, men can be diagnosed with breast cancer too; generally at an older age.
Pilates can play an integral role in breast cancer recovery, not only for its physiological benefits, but for boosting self-esteem, confidence, and an overall sense of well-being. Pilates is a natural choice for recovery. The exercises repattern musculature in an effective, but non-aggressive manner, resulting in increased strength, flexibility, and mobility.
