Gentle exercise classes can help cancer patients ease back into regular physical activity while undergoing cancer retreatment and can also help in the recovery process.
Be in Motion with Samantha Williams is a weekly online exercise class offered by the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center every Wednesday and Friday from 1 pm to 2 pm. Starting September 29, Be In Motion will also meet in person 1 pm to 2 pm at the Cobscook Institute, 10 Commissary Point Rd, Lubec, Maine with an online option.
This gentle exercise class is designed for those who have had a cancer diagnosis, are currently in treatment, cancer survivors and their caregivers. The focus is on restoring range of motion, encouraging lymph drainage and muscle strengthening. All levels are welcome. Medical clearance from a physician must be obtained before starting.
Samantha Williams, E-RYT 500, has been teaching yoga since 2011, and currently leads classes, workshops, and yoga teacher training programs at Bold Coast Yoga School. Samantha is also a Cancer Exercise Specialist and has led the Be In Motion class since 2014.
