Moving For Life Student Testimonial by Beverly Thompson

"I had lost something very precious – where I used to be.  In 2017, I was 6-months out from a breast cancer diagnosis, surgery, treatment, and keeping track of a new cancer container now keeping company alongside my diabetes stash of pills and needles. At an all-time low in my life, having never been sick, I was precariously juggling grief, denial, and loss. I didn’t know where to begin to restore myself. My empty medicine cabinet shelves were now cluttered with things to extending my life – I didn’t know where to turn. 

Serendipity a miraculous thing, I thought, that only blesses others, surely not me. Moving For Life took me totally by surprise,  getting my body awareness, muscle tone, and, most importantly, my faith in life  back to some sense of normalcy."

What to expect

  1. Class begins with an easy breath-based warm-up and stretching—safely increasing the range of movement in the arms and legs.
  2. Next, explore breathing and movement exercises that are specially designed to reduce swelling (lymphedema).
  3. Then, reduce fatigue by dancing actively to upbeat music.
  4. Work up a sweat and awaken and enliven bodies and spirits instilled with whimsy.
  5. Build strength using weights and therabands or one's own body weight.
  6. Some sequences challenge the brain - helping to fight the effects of mental fog and confusion.
  7. Each session comes to a close with a relaxing stretching sequence and a community dialogue about new feelings and resources.
  8. Every class member receives personalized instruction and is guided to build greater awareness of, respect for, and control of all part of the body (helping body image and self-respect).
  9. Upbeat music and free movement serves as an antidote to depression, doing so with others counteracts isolation.
