Aug 14 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Lifting the Fog: A Chemo Brain Discussion with Epic Care Oncologist Dr. Natalie Marshall 

Trouble recalling information or notice a general mental ‘clouding’?  If so, you’re one of many cancer patients who report experiencing some kind of cognitive impairment often referred to as chemo brain.

Join Dr. Marshall at Women’s Cancer Resource Center to learn more about chemo brain, including what causes it, how to manage it, and options for treatment and support.

Chemo brain can start before, during or just after cancer treatment and is associated with a variety of cancer treatments, not just chemotherapy. Common symptoms include forgetfulness, slower thinking or processing information, difficulty concentrating or recalling details or words, trouble multitasking, and more. Whether subtle or extreme, you’re likely well aware of the difference chemo brain makes in your thinking and the impact to every day life.

(MPR) Feldenkrais® Awareness through Movement® Practice with A. Ifátólú Gardner
Aug 15 @ 1:30 pm – 2:45 pm

 Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement® practice.

In each class, Ifátólú verbally guides you through a series of slow, gentle and integrated movements of the Feldenkrais® method. Calling upon your body’s capacities of neuroplasticity, each Feldenkrais® lesson helps you (a) more consciously & joyously inhabit your bodily self, (b) experience greater freedom & ease in your everyday movements, and (c) have more options (a wider range of possibilities) when engaging in any learning activity.

Through the Feldenkrais® method, movement becomes a practice of healing and joyous self-discovery — come experience it for yourself! Everyone is welcome!
A. Ifátólú Gardner, MD, MPH, Ph.D. is a healer, scholar, educator, & Indigenous spiritual elder (Iyánífá). She is also a dancer, yogini, & Feldenkrais ® practitioner and has experience teaching various somatic practices, including the Dunham technique, Qi Gong, Yoga, and the Feldenkrais® method.

Discovering the Feldenkrais® method after a rupture in her health in 2007, Ifátólú
enjoyed the lyricism of the movements, and immediately noticed greater ease in her
everyday movement and a wondrously renewed sense of her body as a source of joy. She was hooked! Entering the FRTI Berkeley professional Feldenkrais® training program in 2009, Ifátólú was certified – and began – teaching Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement® classes in 2011.
All of Ifátólú’s work is an expression of her deep appreciation, & ongoing exploration, of the healing and transformative powers of somatic practices and of ancient indigenous wisdom traditions.

Classes are performed lying, sitting, &/or standing. Please wear comfortable clothing.

Everyone welcome. Registration required.
