June Kahn @junekahn is full of energy and information! Pilates is her passion, and with over 30 years in the business and as a two-time Cancer survivor, she is dedicated to her mission #MovementHeals. June is Special Consultant to Curves International and an Elite Master Trainer for #SavvierFitness. A published author & @IDEAfit media spokesperson for Pilates, she’s an expert subject writer for the @ACEfitness exam, an Affiliate to the @physicalmind Institute and serves on the program selection committee for @ACSM1954 (American College of Sports Medicine).
About 10 years ago, June was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Follicular Lymphoma and two years of Chemotherapy followed. Today she is cancer free. She says that Pilates pulled her through and there is no doubt that “movement healed and inspired” her. As a result she became a pilates cancer exercise specialist and a Pilates rehab specialist. She is very dedicated to #MovementHeals for cancer patients and survivors.
Moving has always been a part of June’s life. Her cancer crisis showed her exactly how important moving was. She discovered that there was no exercise protocol for cancer patients, June was asked by @Andrea_Leonard_cpt of @cancerexerciseinstitute to write a pilates cancer exercise program and she also started working with a chiropractor who had a background in neuromuscular regeneration to teach pilates to cancer patients.
She found that exercise mentally stimulated them and relieved the depression they were feeling. The movement was restorative and helped patients feel better about themselves. She then studied to become a cancer exercise specialist and Pilates rehab practitioner.
June told us, “Movement helps us heal the process. It brings more fluid to the joints. Movement heals and brings one back to life. Movement is going to keep us going. Look at @janefonda and @bettymwhite for fabulous examples of movement keeping you fit, happy and full of life.
Our interview with @Lindasheltonfitness was last week and June mentions the wonderful @silverandfit classes Linda, as program coordinator, asked her to teach.
