Why Methodist?

Our in-person and virtual physical wellness classes are taught by a team of licensed physical therapists, recreational therapists and certified yoga instructors. Classes are tailored specifically for cancer survivors.

There is a small fee to participate in physical wellness classes. Fees are collected every six weeks, and payment can be made in person or online. Financial assistance is available through Methodist Hospital Foundation.

No one is turned away due to an inability to pay, and all survivors are welcome.
