In January of 2012, Yoga Bridge introduced a unique model of yoga asanas and guided relaxation as a means of supporting those in the healing process of a cancer diagnosis. Yoga classes for cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers are small and allow each student to receive attention. These classes are taught by registered yoga teachers, trained specifically by Yoga Bridge to teach yoga for cancer.
The class schedule includes Restorative yoga, yoga for strength and flexibility, Chair yoga, Gentle Flow yoga, and meditation. Practicing yoga can help alleviate levels of fatigue, depression, and anxiety. The practice can also help provide better sleep and muscle strength.
The classes by Yoga Bridge are free to anyone currently in treatment. Cancer survivors and a guest can also enjoy classes for a small fee.
