Pilates for Cancer Patients and Survivors
In general, exercise is highly recommended for current cancer patients as well as cancer survivors. Low-impact exercises, like Pilates, are known to improve physical health, reduce fatigue, and potentially increase the quality of life for people with cancer. Going through cancer treatments can be very taxing on the mind and body. You may feel extremely weak during and after treatments. This is where Pilates can be used to reconnect you with your body. That’s right, you don’t have to be in perfect health to begin or continue with a Pilates journey. Your Pilates Teacher should be able to modify exercises to meet your current strength and fitness level.
