Tai Chi, Yoga & Zumba
These classes are suitable for all levels including those with low energy. We encourage anyone currently dealing with cancer in their daily lives to utilize these classes, including those in treatment, those who are coping with the side effects of treatment, those supporting someone with cancer, or someone who is grieving the recent loss of a loved one from cancer.
Yoga, tai chi and qigong provide opportunities to boost energy, release tension and improve muscle tone and flexibility. Zumba is a great way to combine cardio, build strength, improve balance and flexibility, and maximize your energy.
