AFTER A DIAGNOSTIC, DURING TREATMENT AND AFTER TREATMENT
Evidence based program
Moving from a place of surviving to thriving
To receive a cancer diagnostic brings a great deal of questions and reflections. The number of things to manage, new vocabulary, decisions to make and all of that at a speed that is overwhelming. The everyday activities must be modified but also there is a different way of listening to the body.
Oncology yoga is a method that has been created to provide physical and psychological support. The objective of this practice is to soothe the multiple symptoms or effects caused by treatments and by cancer itself.
These classes are accessible to anybody going through this path: when just received a diagnose, when in treatment, post-treatment or in remission.
We honor the presence of each individual and their will to improve and support their quality of life.
