RENEW: Gentle Movement Classes
December 12, 2011 | Heather Burchfield
The RENEW: Gentle Movement Classes are part of the Vanderbilt Cancer Wellness Program and are for adults going through cancer treatment as well as those who have finished. Karen Dyer-Klein, an exercise specialist at the Vanderbilt Dayani Center, describes the types of workouts available, which include Ai Chi (aquatic exercise) on Mondays at 3:15 p.m., Qi Gong on Thursdays at 4 p.m., and Restorative Yoga on Saturdays at 1 p.m. These services are available to any cancer patient regardless of where they may have received their primary care. The classes are also free of charge to those going through treatment, and there’s a small monetary fee for those finished with treatment in order to sustain the program.
