Yoga for Cancer is focused on a gentle approach to body awareness and practice. In this support-based class, we honor your unique challenges with a cancer diagnosis through postures, breath work, relaxation and connection to others. Movements can be modified to accommodate all types of limitations. With an emphasis on compassionate self-awareness, these classes will help build strength, vitality and empowerment. All who have been touched by cancer, including caregivers and family members, benefit from the nurturing wisdom of yoga. Classes are facilitated by Pat Fitzsimmons RN, RYT, an instructor specifically trained to work with cancer patients. Registration is required and attendance to all sessions is highly recommended for maximum benefit. It is recommended that participants dress comfortably and bring a mat and water.
