Core and More

Exercise training can improve physical functioning in cancer patients. Exercise can reduce feelings of fatigue, depression, and nausea; improve mental well-being and quality of life; and enhance ability to perform daily tasks. Not only does exercise produce positive changes in energy levels, muscular strength, and joint flexibility, exercise can also produce positive changes in an individual's sense of confidence, mood, and quality of life.

This class includes Pilates based mat exercises to work on core strength and stability, enhancing range of motion, flexibility, balance, and muscular strength. Our goal is to increase your ability to attend to activities of daily living, and have fun doing it!

This weekly class is open to non-UCSF cancer patients, as well as UCSF cancer patients, survivors and caregivers.

There is no fee to participate, but please e-mail the instructor, Jane Clark, Certified Pilates and Fitness Instructor, to register and receive the Zoom link.

New attendees, please fill out the health history and waiver prior to attending your first class.
