Return to Life: Breast Cancer Recovery Using Pilates
By: Naomi Aaronson MA OTR/L CHT Certified Cancer Exercise Trainer, Ann Marie Turo OTR/L Yoga/Pilates Instructor Reiki Master
Cancer is a disease that affects both mind and body. More and more cancer survivors are coming to health-fitness professionals to regain strength, mobility, and endurance. Pilates principles and movements are great for restoring function to Breast Cancer Survivors. You can incorporate these principles for your group fitness and personal training clients without being certified or highly experienced in Pilates. This course provides sound information about breast cancer and its process, along with several exercise video clips to aid you in working with breast cancer clients to help them regain a connection to their body. Use these principles to facilitate your cancer survivors' "return to life."
