Research shows that survivors of breast cancer benefit from exercise in general and particularly need strength training. Additional research shows that Pilates exercises increase flexibility, and greatly add to the quality of life for survivors.
Restoration on the MOTR®, an exciting new tool from Balanced Body®, (not included in course price), allows survivors of any age group to have the option of adding Pilates-based strength development. The MOTR®, pictured, combines the comfort of a foam roller with the challenge of three weight level resistances, giving you a challenging and incredibly diverse workout tool.
