What Cancer Recovery patients say about Yoga…
Even my oncologist is telling me that exercise is the best thing – to keep moving. Particularly walking and Yoga are things that come up as being beneficial to your mental well-being, physical well-being…. And maybe really overcoming cancer.

When I come here, I’m also learning self-love. Before the class, they always give us a little quote. A friendly reminder…. Self-love is a journey, not a destination.

I work my appointments around Yoga just because I know that it made me feel so good and to feel good when I am there. The motion, the movement, the stretches and I think it really helped bring back the positivity.
