Full Listing of Class Offerings

Healing Through Movement

Cancer causes many changes. It affects your schedule, your body, and your confidence in unexpected ways. That’s why we offer Healing Through Movement, to give you a new kind of support.  Expert movement therapists can help you reclaim control of your strength and spirit in this dance-inspired fitness class.

Learn movements from ballet, jazz, yoga, and Pilates to tone the thighs, lift the butt, strengthen the abdominals, and shape the arms. This is a low- to medium-impact total-body workout that adjusts to the needs of every person in every class.

This workshop is open to everyone affected by cancer — patients, survivors, and caregivers.
Healing Through Movement is a four-week series. Classes will take place on March 16th, March 23rd, April 6th, and April 13th only.

Exercise for All

Our signature aerobics class will help patients of all ages and abilities increase their endurance for everyday activities. Utilizing a variety of small weights, this class helps decrease breathlessness and fatigue, improve muscle tone and flexibility.

Focused Fitness for Women

Focused Fitness for Women is geared for our female patient populations, particularly breast and GYN cancer survivors. Common side effects these patients experience after surgery can include lymphedema or “frozen shoulder”. This class can help reduce the risk of lymphedema and improve range of motion if the condition has already been diagnosed. Exercises in this class will target areas of the body, including abs, legs, seat, lower back and thighs, without jumping and running that can put strain on the joints.

PEX

Our PEX class pays attention to the unique needs our men patients and survivors share: to rebuild their muscle strength, improve balance and increase endurance. Through cardio sequences and weight training, PEX offers men of all ages and stage of treatment a fun and challenging workout that improve their health and confidence.

Strong Bones & Muscular Health

Strong Bones & Muscular Health is an exercise program for those who have osteoporosis or are at risk of developing it. Exercise helps to maintain bone density and stimulate bone growth. This class uses walking, aerobics, and balance and weight training to strengthen bones.

Tai Chi/Qi Gong

Tai Chi/Qi Gong combines movement and meditation and can be practiced by individuals of any age or fitness level. Regular practice can reduce stress, increase stamina and balance, and improve sleep.

Yoga for EveryBODY

Try yoga in a supportive and soothing environment customized to you. In these classes, you will learn a variety of classic yoga breathing methods and postures, and can work on improving your flexibility, lifting your mood, and learning how to better control your breathing.
