I just want to tell you how much I enjoyed watching the breast cancer DVD – Strengthen your Recovery (what a great title too!).
I believe this DVD is a life changing gift for women emerging from their mastectomy/lymph node operations.
As I watched and listened and learned, trying the movement and exercise as if for the first time, I imagined myself chartering unknown territory in that daunting post-op phase.
Fiona’s gentle instruction and warm voice provided a wonderful feeling of safety and comfort throughout. In addition, her personal experience on top of her Pilates expertise conveys a unique depth of understanding for what each woman is experiencing – such empathy is worth its weight in gold.
Upon completing the exercise routines, there is a sense of accomplishment and a feeling of empowerment – both of which I am sure are somewhat diminished after the trials of breast cancer.
This an important and ground breaking DVD that could easily be used by a wider audience, particularly those recovering from many types of Thoracic surgery.
Congratulations to Fiona and her supporters!
