ENRICHing Survivorship - A free exercise & nutrition program for cancer survivors
Healthy eating and regular exercise can improve cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, stamina, self-esteem and quality of life. Exercise can also reduce fatigue, nausea, pain, anxiety and depression.
What is ENRICHing Survivorship
ENRICHing Survivorship is facilitated by an exercise physiologist/ physiotherapist, dietitian, yoga instructor and volunteers to improve your physical and emotional wellbeing after cancer treatment. The program runs one day per week for 8 weeks and each session is 2 hours.
The program is made up of the following components:
- Six sessions focus on exercise and nutrition to improve cancer health.
- A yoga and mindfulness session introduces relaxation breathing techniques to help reduce stress and anxiety.
- A peer support session provides practical information, discussion and ideas about how to adjust to the changes following cancer treatment.
Who can join ENRICHing Survivorship
The program is available to people over 18 who have completed active cancer treatment. A carer, partner or family member is welcome to attend with the cancer survivor.
