Exercise & Movement
Studies have found that cancer patients who engage in moderate exercise each week experience significant benefits, both physical and emotional. Not only does their overall health improve, but by taking positive action, they feel more in control of their lives. The Gentle Movement classes at Cancer CAREpoint provide an opportunity for cancer patients of all ages and fitness levels to engage in exercises they can handle. Based on the Rosen Movement Method, the classes are designed to increase flexibility.
Yoga can help alleviate depression, anxiety and insomnia as well as boost mood and outlook.

The classes are adaptable for all levels of health and physical mobility, and include traditional, chair, gentle, and on-the-floor yoga. The classes focus on achieving balance between body and mind.
