I%u2019m recently recovered from Lyme, not cancer, but have had some similar issues with restarting movement. I read that Moving for Life would stimulate my lymph system, which is key in Lyme Disease recovery. I was drawn to Moving for Life because I have a current injury (or some residual Lyme issues) and decided to start with the chair routines.

I am reasonably fit, so I can%u2019t say that I worked up a sweat (and I don%u2019t in Tai Chi either) but I was delighted to be moving and stretching those areas of my body that I know needed it. This is a program anyone can use%u2014no past aerobic or yoga training needed. Great fun! Even in a chair the program will definitely get you moving and the music will make you want to move and pull you along. My biggest challenge was staying within my current physical limits, as I wanted to sail away with the music. I have now ventured in to the stand up class and can say it is equally as fun and you will definitely move. I%u2019m so glad that Annie and Martha have addressed the issue of movement for those recovering from Cancer (and inadvertently, Lyme).

Sailing away with the music certainly is a strong draw. Indeed it is moving to great music that is central to healing. Your's is an important point for all viewers. Its essential to keep checking in on stressors on the body, sensations that are unusual - pulls in a new direction, increased fatigue, or getting overheated or dehydrated. In general, it's safest to work in a smaller range and at a slightly slower pace when dealing with injuries. I wish you the best in feeling totally better.

Thank you so much!!
I`m so so so happy!

I met with our new MFL teachers in Japan last week and Dr. Machiko, Phd in sociology and she brought me the Dance to Recovery DVD from NY.
Thank you so much for making this DVD. I watched it everyday!! It is so wonderful.
It let me always feel joyful. It is so wonderful for cancer survivors.
I wish that the DVD translated into Japanese will be produced some day soon!!

I appreciate all your help.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I will do my best for all cancer survivors in my life!!

Manami
