Cancer rehabilitation is an essential component of cancer care. It is incredible to think that just by taking the simple step of getting involved in physical activity, people affected by cancer could be helping themselves to overcome a whole host of short and long-term physical and physiological problems.
This workshop will have both a theory and practical component.
The aims of the theory component are to look:
Into the impact of cancer treatments on the body
The benefits exercise can provide to counteract some of these side effects
The current evidence and the guidelines for exercise and cancer
The practical component will involve:
A Pilates class consisting of Pilates exercises that target improvements in a number of aspects of fitness, including: balance, flexibility and strength.
