Yoga Beyond Cancer First Saturday Series

Every first Saturday of the month, join me at Yoga Del Mar for an afternoon workshop-style Yoga Beyond Cancer class that combines gentle physical and mental practices to empower you to live your life not defined by the diagnosis.

Find renewed strength, flexibility, and a sense of physical and mental balance, learn to handle side effects of cancer treatment, get individual attention and adjustments suited for your body, and find relief from stress, anxiety and fatigue in a supported and safe environment. Learn tools and simple practices to take home for continued support on your journey outside of class. Each month we will focus on a different theme and practice.

Anyone in any stage of cancer treatment, cancer survivors, and caregivers (friends and family) are very welcome and encouraged to join. No previous yoga experience is necessary.

Next dates: January 12, February 2, March 2, 2019.

Time: 1:00 - 2:30 pm

Price: $20 per session, or $45 for three! Register now to get your spot!


CUSTOM yoga workshops designed for your group's needs 

I teach workshops in healing yoga and meditation for cancer recovery, and the use of yoga techniques to fight specific side effects like fatigue.  My special interest and focus is on giving you concrete tools to get hold of your mind any time that it spins into negativity and anxiety, so that you may tap into your mind's healing power.

In my unique two- to three-hour workshops, you will experience the benefits of a gentle yoga practice tailored to your needs, learn about the scientific and practical evidence of the effects that this practice can have, and participate in a Q&A session with others in the group and the teacher, to ask any questions and voice any concerns that you might have about the practices. In workshops that address specific side effects of treatment and illness, we discuss both yoga practices and other supporting healing practices, such as simple nutritional choices you can make to help you live each day most energetically.

I am also available to design a workshop specifically for your group needs.
