This class welcomes participants in all points in their journey as yoga tools can enhance the quality of life during and after treatment. Each gentle yoga class consists of mindfulness-based practices of breathing, yoga movement sequences, and guided relaxation. Participants practice at their own pace; postures may be done using a mat or chair.

Stress management and relaxation, increased circulation and energy flow, greater freedom of movement and improved sense of wellbeing are some of the benefits of yoga.
