This weekly class is designed for those dealing with cancer treatment, recovering from treatment, or impacted by a loved one's cancer journey.

Pilates is an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise using a floor mat or a variety of equipment. These exercises evolved from principles of Joseph Pilates and can transform the way your body feels, looks and performs. Our Modified Pilates Mat Class is low impact which will help you build strength, flexibility and overall body awareness.

Through proper breathing, correct body alignment and concentration we will teach you how to move efficiently. Our goal is to educate you, motivate you to regain control of your bodies, lives and assist with your pain management. Through our mat class we will teach you how to assist your lymphatic system, strengthen your muscular system, improving your balance and overall confidence. This class is intended for anyone impacted by cancer.

Please get cleared by your medical doctor to perform physical activity prior to attending this class. This class will assist in modifications appropriate for all levels and stages of treatment or recovery.

Class sponsored by Moving Beyond Cancer Collaborative.

About your Instructors:

Gladys Nicholls: Gladys received her Bachelors in Physical Therapy in 1981 from the University of Puerto Rico and set out to further specialize in Orthopedics and Manual Therapy while traveling the world as a military wife. She took her first Pilates class 17 years ago at Pilates Center of Austin while she was opening a new Rehab Facility for Seton at Seton Southwest. She was hooked. She completed her Pilates Certification Program in 2001 and incorporates the principles in her patient care. She believe in mind-body exercise as a tool to assist with conventional medical treatment.

Catherine Pierce was an Irish step-dancer for over ten years in New York. Shortly after moving to Austin in 2001, she discovered Pilates while working in a rehabilitation/pain management clinic. After almost five years as a loyal student of the Pilates method, Catherine dedicated a full year in the comprehensive Power Pilates program. She has over 600 hours of self-practice, teaching and observation on apparatus and mat. She is also a certified massage therapist. Catherine happily teaches from my 25 ft Airstream home as she travels with her partner David & Bulldog, Maud. You can reach Catherine at 512-826-3373.
