WORKSHOPS | 9:00 - 12:00


Workshop dedicated to Pilates exercises as a form of therapy and rehabilitation after oncological surgery. Especially after the mastectomy operation. During the workshop, we will analyze this medical operation and its effects (removal of glands, relocation of organs, changes in mobility and range of movement after removing parts of surrounding muscles), and show the historical connection with the Pilates method. And we will propose a set of exercises to help you regain full health. We will demonstrate that the Pilates Method exercise protocol supports physiotherapy and allows you to recover more quickly. And the patient will regain strength, stability and improve overall endurance.
