  • The drawdown will start after Labor Day and the full drawdown of a maximum of 14 inches should occur by mid September.
  • The drawdown will be maintained from mid-September to the first of November.

Post Cancer Exercise Group at Lymes’ Senior Center

July 25th, 2017

FREE Post Cancer Exercise Class

A Surviving-N-Moving Class (Post Cancer Exercise Group) will begin September 19th and held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-4:30pm.  It is open to all adults and will be held at the Lymes’ Senior Center -26 Town Woods Road Old Lyme, CT.  Instructor Donna Scott is trained and certified as a Certified Personal Trainer and Cancer Exercise Training Specialist (CES) with over 8 years of combined personal/group training experience. As a CES she has studied exercise implications and contraindications for 25 types of cancer, surgery, reconstruction and treatments, breast reconstruction and contraindications to exercise, about preventing and identifying lymphedema and cancer related pain, mental and physical fatigue during cancer treatment, and conducting postural assessments and working with medical professionals as needed

Following cancer surgery and treatment there are numerous physically debilitating side effects that cancer clients have become accustomed to living with.~ Based on her training, Donna Scott have developed, “Surviving-N-Moving”, so cancer survivors no longer have to accept the fact that they have to live with limited range of motion, poor posture, neck and back pain, lymphedema, chronic fatigue, and many other symptoms, following their surgery/treatment. Through this simple group exercise program combining cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, balance, flexibility and relaxation techniques,many of the agonizing problems survivors experience can be made more tolerable.  Besides the physical aspects that cancer survivors gain from exercise, getting together in a group setting creates a community, sharing common struggles where each member becomes accountable to one another and friendships develop.

This 11 week – twice a week program which is FREE (normally $110.00) thanks to the generous donations from the Friends of the Lymes’ Senior Center, the Old Lyme Visiting Nurses Association and the Lymes’ Senior Center Board.

This class contains the following elements:

Short “centering” meditation

Low impact movement

Resistance/Strength training with light weights or bands

Flexibility and Balance

Stretching

Cool down/ Relaxation

All participants must receive medical clearance from their Doctor before beginning the program and complete a Health History Questionnaire, and a Quality of Life Questionnaire. This program is open to all adults who have been treated for cancer and are in post recovery phase.  The class minimum is 8 and the class maximum is 15 so the instructor can personalize her attention to each and every student. For more information or to sign up please call Donna Scott at 860-961-4507.
