TIPS FOR TAKING CLASS:
Scroll through each class before taking it, so you can see what's included and what props you'll need.

Can I really do this course during cancer treatment? Won't I be too sick?
That's the crazy thing with cancer, and in particular with chemotherapy: you'll go through ups and downs with feeling good and then not-so-good. All of the research points towards having a better experience (I mean, it's relative, but we do what we can) if you take advantage of the times you're feeling good to get some exercise. It was my experience through multiple chemo cycles that the ones where I really dedicated some time to exercising on the good days, the better I felt overall.
Is it safe to exercise while I'm going through treatment?
In a word, yes - but please get clearance from your oncology team before starting any kind of exercise. Everyone's experience is a little different, and there may be specific circumstances for you that I don't know about.
Some of this looks really hard - like beyond-my-ability hard.
I get it - and it's designed to be progressive, which means you start with the first class, and move on when you can tolerate it. You might get through the first few classes, or you might make it all the way to the end. Either way, the most important thing is that you're moving. You might also find that once you're done with treatment, you'll be able to progress all the way to the end.
When will my hair be normal again?
I've been asking the same question for the past year. Let me know if you find anything out.
