It concerns a physical activity adapted to the consequences of cancer and its treatments, supervised by a sports therapy practitioner specifically trained in physical and sports activity in oncology.
The sessions are based on a teaching method specifically created by CAMI Sport & Cancer, Médiété®, which is a sequence of movements and exercises mobilising the entire body.
The sessions last one hour and are carried out in groups at the AnimaNice Pasteur Center.
