Moving for Life training was designed in 1999, based on principles from Dynamic Embodiment, to deal with the effects of cancer treatment: fatigue, weakness, weight gain, depression, lymphedema and the diminished movement range around the shoulder girdle and center of weight in the pelvis. It is a training to encourage woman to actively participate in their healing process in a group setting.
It is empowering – teaching self-help. The movement training encourages each participant to find trust and respect in her body and in herself as a whole person. It is fun, scientifically sound, and endorsed by a panel of award-winning doctors.
