Yoga for Cancer Survivors

Yoga for Cancer Survivors

Yoga has been practiced for centuries to improve one's physical and emotional health and well-being. Studies have shown that cancer patients and survivors who practice yoga have had improvements in their mood, the physical and psychosocial symptoms associated with their cancer, and their overall quality of life. The class is open to survivors of any type of cancer at any point in their recovery process. It will incorporate simple yoga poses to gently stretch and strengthen the body and relaxation techniques to calm the mind. Modifications to poses will be made to address individual needs. For participants who may find it difficult to sit on the floor, the poses can be performed sitting in a chair. No yoga experience is necessary and basic equipment is provided (mats,straps, and blocks). This course is free. Please wear comfortable clothing. Classes will be led by Amanda Johnson, MSW, RYT, and will be kept small to ensure individual attention
