The Ironstone Wellbeing Centre is delighted to have been asked to team up with Northamptonshire Sport, Sport England and Macmillan to run funded weekly yoga classes both in the studio and online to help support people living with cancer.
Yoga has many benefits and our customers often say how much the breathing exercises taught in yoga have helped when undergoing treatment. Yoga can support the side effects such as pain, tiredness, sleep problems and depression.
Please share this page with anyone who you think may benefit from these sessions.
There is lots of evidence that physical activity can help at all stages of the cancer pathway, from pre-treatment to during and after treatment. Being physically active helps to overcome cancer-related fatigue, anxiety and depression, while protecting the heart, lungs and bones. In some cases, being physically active has also been shown to slow the progression of cancer, improve survival and reduce the chance of cancer reoccurring.
The classes aim to support individuals who have been affected by cancer and whose quality of life can be maintained or improved through taking part in regular physical activity. It is available to patients who have been diagnosed with any cancer type and are pre-treatment, undergoing treatment or post-treatment.
We are currently offering weekly free sessions both in person and online.
Join us every Tuesday and Thursday at 5.30pm.
Please complete the initial sign up form on the Northamptonshire Sport Website and support the monitoring of the programme to hopefully secure additional funding. Please answer all the questions. After completion you will be emailed the details for the centre and how to access the sessions.
You will need to book weekly on to the Ironstone classes of choice.
