Walk, Talk, and Yoga
This class is appropriate for anyone at any stage who would like to learn and ask questions. Meet at our office and enjoy an easy paced walk to a local park (weather permitting) and practice learning three gentle types of yoga:
- The Yoga of Mediation (dhyana): Cancer is overwhelming. Meditation can help. Have you thought to yourself meditation is too hard? Too boring? Sounds interesting but I don’t know how to start? Or have you, like me, mistaken daydreaming for meditation? Learn in a few minutes a tool you can use for the rest of your life.
- The Yoga of Simple movement (kriya): A few weeks after surgery I felt healed enough to start exercising, but nowhere near my former self. Yoga for Cancer “Patience” are simple movements designed to reclaim mobility and soothe lymphedema.
- The Yoga of Standing poses (asana): Estrogen blockers giving you osteopenia? Use standing poses to build bone density as part of your healing modality.
