Exercise and Movement
Exercise provides a building block for better health, especially for people with cancer and cancer survivors. More clinicians and oncologists are recommending exercise as a strategy for reducing the side effects of treatment, speeding recovery and improving overall quality of life.
Our certified instructors guide movement and work with participants to ensure that they receive personalized and caring support during sessions. These classes also provide important health benefits to family, friends and caregivers.
