For people living with and beyond cancer, the advice used to be ‘rest is best’.
Our Move More team however, know that even a small amount of gentle exercise can help reduce your fatigue and leave you feeling better.
Macmillan East Ren currently have a wide variety of sessions including Macmillan Friendly Walking groups, Gentle Movement classes and Circuit classes. Please see the information below and get in touch with our Move More Coordinator if you are interested in finding out more.
Macmillan friendly walk
Macmillan cancer-friendly walks are short, sociable walks that provide a supportive, friendly environment encouraging anyone affected by cancer to become more active.
If you are interested in getting involved in a Macmillan Friendly Walk, contact our Move More Coordinator.
Gentle Movement is based on Chi Gung, an ancient Chinese practice aligning breathing, physical activity, mental and spiritual awareness. This class will build your strength, balance, coordination and confidence and will leave you feeling relaxed, with a clear mind.
If you are interested in getting involved with a Gentle Movement session, contact our Move More Coordinator.
Circuit classes are led by specially trained cancer rehabilitation and exercise instructors. They use a variety of simple cardiovascular and strength exercises which are adaptable to provide an individualised physical activity programme.
If you are interested in getting involved please contact our Move More Coordinator.
