Learn to live well
Your PINC & STEEL Cancer Rehab Physio will guide, support and encourage you through each NEXT STEPS class. They will adapt exercises within each class to suit your individual needs. The classes can be started at any level of fitness as the periods of exercise and rest are adapted as fitness, strength and stamina improve. Each session finishes with a yoga relaxation sequence to restore a sense of calm and confidence, and includes an opportunity to reflect on your journey and be inspired by your own progress.
NEXT STEPS benefits participants whether they attend one week or 10 years after their cancer treatment.
How much does it cost?
The 10 week program is delivered free to participants as it has been subsidised by PINC&STEEL fundraising. There is a small upfront cost of $30 for our therapy team to complete your initial assessment before joining the program.
Want to join?
The class will run for 10 weeks from the 22nd April, Thursdays at 2pm. There are only 10 people able to attend and due to time limitations we request that you book an initial assessment before the 15th April. You will just need a water bottle, a towel and a yoga mat.
To join the class, please register directly with PINC&STEEL here. Once you have registered we will be in touch to organise your initial consultation.
