EnCourage Support Group: Pilates for Breast Cancer Survivors


  Kim Munoz, owner of Nola Pilates and a post-rehabilitative breast cancer exercise specialist, will demonstrate Pilates exercises to help breast cancer survivors regain strength and mobility at the EnCourage support group meeting at the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery (1717 St. Charles Ave., 899-2800; www.breastcenter.com) from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 13.

  Munoz, a registered nurse, will demonstrate exercises used in the Pink Ribbon Program, which was designed to help patients improve their range of motion and strengthen their shoulder, chest, back and abdominal muscles following breast cancer surgery.

  Encourage support group meetings take place every second Wednesday of the month. They are free and open to the public, but reservations are required. For more information or to make reservations, contact Katie at 899-2800 or email encourage@breastcenter.com. — Kandace Power Graves
