Life Now exercise and meditative courses

  • The Life Now program offers introductory exercise, meditation, mindful art, mindfulness, tai chi and yoga courses at locations across the state.
  • Courses are free of charge for people affected by cancer and their primary carers, thanks to generous community donations.
  • All courses are delivered by experienced facilitators in a safe and supportive environment.
  • Mind body activities such as yoga, meditation and exercise are an important part of supportive cancer care. These activities provide a range of mental and physical health benefits. Research shows these activities can help reduce stress and anxiety and improve quality of life for people affected by cancer.

Please note: 

Due to the evolving situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic in Australia, Cancer Council WA are following the Department of Health guidelines, and have implemented measures and precautions to ensure the safety of all of our staff, volunteers, colleagues, and the patients and families that we support. We are focusing on minimising exposure, and all face-to-face Life Now courses are cancelled until further notice.

To continue to provide supportive cancer care in this new environment, a reduced offering of Online Life Now courses will be held in 2020.
