|Many studies have shown the beneficial impact of yoga for cancer patients and survivors. This workshop will explore the physical, mental and emotional impact of a cancer diagnosis and its ensuing treatments, as well as the yogic approach to holistic healing. Through yoga postures, meditation, mantra and visualization, we will learn tools to help:
Relieve Stress Improve joint function Break up scar tissue Boost immunity Alleviate insomnia Improve respiration and digestion Increase strength, flexibility and well-being Reduce anxiety and depression Move lymph fluid Reduce "chemo brain"
This workshop is open to anyone who is interested in learning about the therapeutic applications of yoga for cancer. Whether you are a cancer patient or survivor, yoga instructor, health care professional, healer or interested caregiver, this workshop will give you practical tools to foster greater health and healing. Visiting instructor, Lauren Maher (CYT, E-RYT 500) is a certified yoga therapist who specializes in teaching yoga to cancer patients during and post treatment. She has taught extensively at We Spark Cancer Support Center, and currently serves as a yoga therapist for the Family Cancer Center at Providence Hospital. Additionally, she has been a frequent guest lecturer at the "Wellness Through Awareness" program at Mission Hills Providence Hospital and writes frequent articles about yoga and cancer. Lauren is passionate about making yoga accessible to everyone, and draws from her knowledge of various yoga styles to create a practice that is appropriate for the shifting, daily needs of her students. Lauren views the real benefits of yoga as what you take with you outside of the class and into the world.
