Exercise

Regular exercise can greatly improve physical and mental health and it's a very important piece of the cancer journey. At The Gathering Place, we understand the importance of exercise during or after treatment and will work each participant to help them meet their unique needs. Those who were not active before their cancer diagnosis can safely and successfully join one of our exercise programs.

Exercise

Exercise class that builds on balance, stability and body awareness.
Balance for Improved Function stresses simple, functional movements, allowing participants to move more efficiently and decrease fall risks. The focus is on building up core stability and balance simultaneously, while at the same time creating a better sense of body awareness. This class is appropriate for those experiencing symptoms such as muscle weakness, fatigue and neuropathy.

Yoga for Cancer is a gentle, mind-body practice designed to empower participants to take an active role in managing their care and long-term health. The classes include physical postures and movement to improve strength, mobility, range of motion, balance and circulation. Breathing practices are used for better respiration, while mediation and other relaxation techniques are used to help manage stress and anxiety to enhance well-being. Each class offers modifications to meet fluctuations in physical ability and energy level throughout the cancer journey. Different positions (in chairs, on the floor and standing) and the use of props are encouraged to meet individual needs. Instructor: Lisa Thiel, MA, E-RYT500

Zumba Gold® takes the Zumba formula and modifies the moves and pacing to suit the needs of the active, older participant, as well as those just starting their journey to a fit and healthy lifestyle. What stays the same are all the elements the Zumba Fitness-Party is know for: zesty Latin music, like Salsa, Merengue. Cumbia and Reggaeton. While the moves are easy to follow and exhilarating, this class is low intensity and low impact to protect our hips, knees and ankles while getting our hearts pumping. No experience is necessary and the routines can be done standing or sitting. Instructor: Anita Bartel
