MBABANE – Get your pink training gear ready ahead of the Pilates training session and picnic for breast cancer awareness.

The health and wellness event will go down on October 31, 2020 at Malandela’s Lodge, starting at 9:30am. Participants will have to part with E200 and half of the proceeds from the gate takings will be donated to the Swaziland Breast and Cervical Cancer Network in support of the breast cancer awareness campaign, which is celebrated throughout the month of October. 


Pilates training is a method of exercise that consists of low-impact flexibility and muscular strength and endurance movements. It emphasizes proper postural alignment, core strength and muscle balance. 

This form of exercise was named after its creator, Joseph Pilates, who developed it in the 1920s.

The event was organised by Studio-Z women’s only gym coach and bodybuilder Zama Potgieter and will be choreographed by one of the gym members, Carla Jele, who is a certified Pilates instructor. 

Since this event will focus on improving health and fitness as well as educating the nation about the effects of breast and cervical cancer, Doctor Xolile Mabuza will be empowering the attendants on the subject and teaching them how to self-examine for symptoms of breast cancer, which affects both men and women.


“People should come and experience a different kind of body weight training where you use small muscles for stretching quite effectively. We have a health expert, Doctor Xolile Mabuza, who will share knowledge about breast and cervical cancer. I would encourage people to make early reservations so that we can monitor the numbers,” said Potgieter.

Free snacks for the picnic after training will be provided for all attendees. 

Potgieter further reminded people that sharing of personal equipment was strictly prohibited as this allowed for the easy spread of viruses and germs, especially now that the world is fighting against COVID-19 that has wreaked havoc globally. 

Registration and bookings are done by Philile Xaba who is reachable on 7603 4686.
