Movement Heals: Pilates for Breast Cancer Survivors
Join SBL instructors Rachel Merga and Jessie Savage for a workshop to help women alleviate the physical side effects of breast cancer treatment and breast reconstruction and surgeries as a result of cancer. This workshop will help with movement constraints and will focus on opening up the shoulders and chest and will strengthen the upper back.
In 1956 professional dancer Eve Gentry was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a radical mastectomy removing part of the pectoral muscle, She was told that her dance career would be over and she would not have full functional range of motion. Joseph Pilates worked with Eve Gentry to strengthen surrounding muscles and she was able to re-gain full movement and resume her dance career.
