Pinnk Ribbon Program Classes in Kent


Ismini Phillips is an authorised and dedicated instructor of the Pink Ribbon Program. She works in restricted groups of 6 people per course or alternatively can offer classes on a one-to-one basis.

The Pink Ribbon Prograrm

exercise may be the last thing you feel like doing after breast cancer surgery. You're probably exhausted, your arm 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.

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 women to regain full range of motion to those areas affected by breast cancer surgery. This program is suitable whether your surgery was recent or several years ago and accomodates all fitness levels.

Qualified Breast Cancer Exercise Specialist

The Breast Cancer exercise Specialist (BCES) is a professional qualified to assess, design, and implement individual and group exercise and fitness programs for those diagnosed with cancer. The BCES is skilled in evaluating health behaviours and risk factors, conducting fitness assessments, writing appropriate exercise recommendations and motivating individuals to modify negative health habits and maintain positive lifestyle behaviours for health promotion.

The BCES will have a complete understanding of the entire cancer process from diagnosis to treatment, recovery, prevention of lymphedema, and contraindications.

Course Timetables & Schedules

As the Pink Ribbon Program is restricted to a maximum of 6 participants per course, it is highly advisable to contact Ismini directly to find out when the next program is in your area.

Schedules and time lines are not advertised as the course runs for an initial 6 weeks, with a Pink Ribbon Pilates Transition course thereafter and Ismini prefers to run these courses on demand. Alternatively, if you are uncomfortable about joining one of these small groups, Ismini is happy to provide the Program on a one to one basis. This can be either studio based or in the privacy of your own home.

For more information about the Pink Ribbon Program Pilates please contact Ismini via the contact Page.

 

 

"After surgery and treatment for Breast Cancer I was lacking in confidence with reduced mobility of the affected arm due to lymph node clearance.

Returning to Pilates classes not only regained my confidence with the use of my arm but has been a physical and emotional release too. The exercises are so important to keep the lymph moving correctly and it makes me feel in control again. Pilates has played a major part in my rehabilitation and recovery."
