"[Cancer survivor and associate professor of political science at the University of Minnesota Wendy Rahn] founded a nonprofit group called Survivors' Training, and in January opened a fitness studio... offering yoga, strength training, Pilates and Nia, which combines dance and martial arts. 'I like to think of it as a support group that moves,' she said."

Anahad O'Conner, Wendy Rahn
