    Sandy, this breast cancer series is invaluable for teachers inheriting patients post surgery from PTs! Thank you for this wonderful work!

    Thank you Sandy! This is great. I am also a Myofascial Therapist and I see you connecting to the fascial system with your moves helping to increase your range of motion and health to the tissue. I love it! To me Pilates, is a natural form of self myofascial release. Thanks again!!

      Judy, that is so interesting. I am always fascinated at the many ways we can look at the body to bring it back to health!
