CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Men’s Fitness & Stretch
Men will use hand-held weights and medicine balls for strength training. In addition, the class will work on core strength, offer balance challenges, and will conclude with an overall body stretch.


Fitness
Use low-impact and cardio segments with muscle-building exercises to build strength and flexibility in bodies de-conditioned by cancer treatment. Classes will include hand weights, resistance tubing and bands, stability balls and mats.


Yogilates

This is a fitness class designed to increase strength, balance, and flexibility using a pilates ring, a mat and BOSU Ball. Emphasis is on core strength.


Yoga
Learn yoga postures that will reduce stress, increase flexibility, and support your healing and sleep. Classes are modified for a variety of needs. Both standing and mat yoga poses will be incorporated.


Manage Emotions Through Yoga
Yoga uses physical postures, breath work and meditation to create harmony within the mind and body. Learn how yoga can help manage emotions and decrease stress. Presented by Jen Botka.


Chair Yoga
Learn to increase balance, flexibility, mobility and stamina while connecting with your body and its movements. This is a gentle form of yoga practiced while sitting in a chair.


Gentle and Restorative Yoga
Gentle, mat-based yoga postures, restorative poses and inversions, performed with the help of such props as bolsters and blankets, make this a good choice for all levels. However, you must be able to get up and down from the floor.


Relaxation and Meditation

Quiet your mind through diaphragmatic breathing, and guided meditation. Enjoy the benefits of reduced anxiety, stress and depression. This class can be done in a chair or on a mat.

common side effects of cancer.
