About this Event

Free Registration/Intake with North County Cancer Fitness Required; please start here: www.NorthCountyCancerFitness.org

Want to have a playful, easy, good-for-body-mind-spirit time? Come to our Zumba® class! Moving is one of the keys to healing and to prevent recurrence – our bodies are meant to move! Learn Salsa, Cumbia, Bachata, Merengue, Reggaetón, Hip-Hop, and free flow too! Recommended for beginners and adapted to each participant’s ability and limitations.

Why Zumba?Research shows that movement to music provides a wide range of benefits: it reduces physical and mental fatigue, increases blood flow, awakens and enlivens body, mind and spirit, increases range of motion, facilitates sleep, increases body awareness and serves as an antidote to depression and isolation, all assisting in lowering risk of recurrence.

“Dance/Movement Therapy - DMT showed significant effects on buffering the deterioration in perceived stress, pain severity, and pain interference…The DMT program can counter the anticipated worsening of stress and pain in women with breast cancer during radiotherapy.” (Ho RT, Fong TC, Cheung IK, Yip PS, Luk MY, 2016) “…findings reinforced the benefits of DMT while adding the new perspective that delivering DMT intervention throughout cancer treatment can have different and even additional benefits for patients.” (Ho RT, Lo PH, Luk MY, 2016) Sitting in a chair works too!

Wear sneakers; bring your water and a yoga mat for an extra 30 min of delicious Gentle Yoga to complete the experience and enjoy all the benefits!
