Pink Ribbon Pilates

Restoring Movement, Enhancing Wellness

Pink Ribbon PilatesLive & Breathe Pilates and Reform Pilates in Blackrock, Co Dublin are excited to announce the launch of Pink Ribbon Pilates a collaboration between our two studios.

The Pink Ribbon Pilates program caters specifically for those affected by breast cancer surgery and is based on the Pink Ribbon Program for post operative rehab.

We believe commencing a Pilates program as soon as possible post surgery is a key part of recovery and regaining function and have seen this first hand with our clients. Don’t just take our word for it, you can read the testimonials in their own words.

A build up of scar tissue, protective posturing and the consequences of treatment all mean that day to day movements and activities such as shampooing your hair, putting on your bra or reaching up to a shelf can be more difficult.

Pink Ribbon Pilates and the exercise programs we design on a client by client basis mean that we build strength and mobility back, gradually. We know how to work with those at risk from lymphoedema to ensure every workout is safe.

Our goal is to provide a supportive, caring, safe and friendly environment for those coming back to exercise after surgery or even during any adjuvant treatments. You can do Pilates during chemo/radiation too – depending on your energy levels –  and we can even offer 15 minute sessions to facilitate you.

We work on a one to one basis with clients and also offer a six week post-surgical group program (subject to an initial assessment). Read more on how it works or read our FAQ.

Post operative breast cancer rehab

We also recommend what we call “pre-hab” if you are scheduled for surgery in future. We will work with you to build your core strength, improve your posture and get you ready to cope with the physical challenges that treatment can throw at you.

Our extended professional network of lymphedema specialists, doctors and physios means we work closely with the medical community to ensure the best possible program for you on the road to recovery.
