Free yoga cancer classes

Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - LOOK LOCAL -

FREE yoga and ex­er­cise classes to help im­prove the lives of peo­ple liv­ing with cancer and their car­ers will start next month in Mid­vale and Glen For­rest.

The Cancer Coun­cil’s Life Now six-week pro­gram guides par­tic­i­pants through gen­tle stretch­ing to help im­prove fit­ness, flex­i­bil­ity and over­all well­be­ing.

“This pro­gram has pre­vi­ously helped many cancer pa­tients and sur­vivors through their treat­ment and re­cov­ery,” a Cancer Coun­cil spokes­woman said.

“We have re­ceived over­whelm­ing pos­i­tive feed­back from par­tic­i­pants.”

Peo­ple with a cancer di­ag­no­sis in the past two years or those un­der­go­ing or who have com­pleted cancer treat­ment are el­i­gi­ble.

The 12-week pro­gram starts on May 19, with classes run by an ex­er­cise phys­i­ol­o­gist. Re­search shows most peo­ple ben­e­fit from ex­er­cise and com­ple­men­tary ther­a­pies dur­ing and af­ter cancer treat­ment.

To reg­is­ter, call 13 11 20, or visit www.can­cerwa.asn.au.
