Martial Arts for Strength and Balance


: Let your inner lion roar and feel empowered while learning martial arts movements to gain strength and flexibility in a safe non‑competitive environment. Martial arts are based on movements that support the joints, conserve energy, and generate power. In this workshop, under the guidance of an MSK mind‑body therapist and martial arts instructor and an MSK massage therapist and functional movement instructor, you will use your body to improve posture, stamina, and flexibility, and to enhance balance and wellbeing. Following an invigorating physical session, calm and relax your body with a guided meditation practice.

Audience: This workshop is open to people who have been treated for cancer and their caregivers.
