Core and More Class

Exercise can improve physical functioning in cancer patients. It can also reduce feelings of fatigue, depression and nausea, improve mental well-being and quality of life, and make it easier to perform daily tasks.

This class includes Pilates-based mat exercises to work on core strength and stability. We also use rollers, bands, balloons and body weight as tools to enhance range of motion, flexibility, balance and muscular strength. Our goal is to increase your ability to attend to activities of daily living, and to have fun doing it.

This class is sponsored by the UCSF Cancer Resource Center. It is open to cancer patients and their caregivers. You do not need to be a patient of UCSF.
