The Be Well Yoga for Cancer Recovery Program was developed to assist those living with cancer - from the first moment of diagnosis continuing throughout the entire recovery process. Our program integrates over three years of hands-on teaching and interaction with those living with cancer, along with incorporating the fact-based science and research of the Yoga4Cancer (y4c) program developed by cancer survivor/master yoga teacher, Tari Prinster, and author of the book Yoga for Cancer and the Stress Management Therapy program developed by Nischala Joy Devi, co-founder of the Award-winning Commonweal Cancer Help Program. Our specialized Yoga for Cancer Recovery program is ideal for individuals who are currently undergoing treatment for cancer, choosing to forego treatment and pursue more holistic therapies, and those who have finished treatment and are on the road to recovery.
Be Well Yoga for Cancer Recovery is a specialized yoga methodology that is tailored to address the specific physical and emotional needs left by cancer and its treatments. This is not just another "gentle" or "restorative" yoga class. Our classes help students to regain strength and mobility after surgery, support a healthy immune system, protect and strengthen bones that may be weakened from treatments, and reduce stress. We also take into account the many possible limitations and side effects that cancer, surgeries, and cancer treatment can cause and the practice is modified based on the individual needs of the student with safety being our number one priority.
