Breast Cancer Program

Breast Cancer Program

Restore…Renew…Be Strong and Keep Moving.

Exercise may be the last thing you feel like doing after breast cancer surgery. You’re probably exhausted, your arms may be painful and swollen and the adjuvant treatments can make you feel even worse. All you want to do is rest. In the past, that’s exactly what doctors recommended. However, recent studies indicate a link between moderate physical exercise and improved quality of life for breast cancer survivors. At Nola Pilates we are dedicated to promoting a healthy lifestyle and positive body image to all breast cancer survivors. The Pink Ribbon Program will help stretch and strengthen the shoulder, chest, back and abdominal muscles, allowing you to regain full range of motion to those areas affected by breast cancer surgery. Our program accommodates all fitness levels, whether your surgery was recent or several years ago.

At Nola Pilates we have implemented the Pink Ribbon Program as our post operative breast cancer rehabilitative program of choice. You can learn more about the program by visiting the Pink Ribbon Program website.

Please call us today for more information or to schedule your complimentary evaluation.

Collaboration with the University Medical Center 

We have proudly joined forces with the UMC in Mid-City to raise money for their Breast Cancer Survivor Support Program.

Team Survivors: Breast Edition is a comprehensive supportive care program for breast cancer survivors at University Medical Center Cancer Center. The program meets monthly and focuses on both physical and emotional well-being as well as coping with ongoing effects from cancer therapies. Attendees are provided the opportunity to learn, share, and discuss topics that affect breast cancer survivors. Hands-on instruction such as cooking and exercise demonstrations are provided.

We are so proud to announce that our studio raised $935 for this amazing program through our Plie for Pink initiative. Our donation will help expand their programs by covering speaker/presentation costs, purchasing needed supplies such as cooking equipment, and alleviating cost of outside activities for their participants.
