Yoga for Breast Cancer

I'm excited about the new Yoga for Breast Cancer program starting January 31 at the Denton Regional Medical Center.  A colleague and I will be teaching a variety of types of yoga, depending on the students' needs:  restorative yoga, meditation, and yoga for energy.  See www.yogabridge.org for details about the classes we teach.

Classes are free to those with breast cancer/survivors of breast cancer. $10 for friends and caregivers. Entire program is funded by Bradie James' Foundation 56.  Bradie James’ Foundation 56 is helping fight breast cancer by offering complimentary therapy classes such as yoga, cooking, art, Zumba, dance and more for breast cancer patients and survivors.

Most of us have friends and family who have been affected by cancer. We see what they are going through and often feel helpless to do anything. Hopefully this program can be a support on a physical, mental, and emotional level to people who really need it.

Here is a link to a previous blog post that refers to the benefits of yoga during and after cancer treatment.
