Healing through Cancer & Chronic Illness

Class Description

A guided Yoga experience designed to honor the needs of each individual student exactly where they are in treatment and recovery.  In a safe and comfortable atmosphere, we will explore movement, breathing and meditation practices as tools to access the innate wisdom of our own bodies and make empowered choices in healing.  Developed by a nurse from evidence-based research, the intention of this offering is to teach self-regulating techniques that can relieve the distressing side effects of cancer and chronic illness physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically while offering joy in daily living.

Participants of the class can expect the following:

  • Confidentiality in communicating medical and all pertinent information essential for the instructor to know
  • Welcoming environment that encourages community building
  • Body awareness and breathing practices
  • Slow, gentle movements to improve blood flow, range of motion, and flexibility in joints and muscles 
  • Explanation of physiological benefits of the breathing, movement and meditation
