The Be Well Yoga for Cancer Recovery Program was created to improve the lives of individuals living with cancer - from the first moment of diagnosis continuing throughout the entire recovery process, and beyond. Our program integrates over six years of hands-on teaching and interaction with cancer patients and has been developed with extreme care and attention to creating optimal wellbeing. Our specialized Yoga for Cancer Recovery program is ideal for individuals who are currently undergoing treatment for cancer, choosing to forego treatment and pursue more holistic therapies, and those who have finished treatment and are on the road to recovery.
Be Well Yoga for Cancer Recovery is a specialized yoga methodology that is tailored to address the specific physical and emotional needs left by cancer and its treatments. This is not just another "gentle" or "restorative" yoga class. Our classes help students to regain strength and mobility after surgery, support a healthy immune system, protect and strengthen bones that may be weakened from treatments, and reduce stress. We also take into account the many possible limitations and side effects that cancer, surgeries, and cancer treatment can cause and the practice is modified based on the individual needs of the student with safety being our number one priority. All Be Well classes are led by certified yoga teachers who have completed our 55-hour Be Well Yoga for Cancer Recovery Teacher Training Program.
Our Be Well Weekly Classes are a safe haven for our students. A place they can come to find peace and stillness in the midst of all the turmoil that life with cancer brings. We create a loving community where students feel comfortable being just who they are as they renegotiate their relationship with themselves and figure out their "new normal".
In addition to weekly classes, Be Well also offers private sessions for those who are unable to attend public classes due to a weakened body and compromised immune system. Private sessions are held at private studio spaces, at the individual's home, and even in hospital. A private Be Well session will be custom tailored to fit the individual's needs and may or may not include more traditional yoga poses. Our teachers are trained in guided relaxation techniques, guided imagery, and reiki energy healing and will work one-on-one to create a healing and relaxing experience.
Be Well Wellness Events are held throughout the year to help build community and raise funds for our programs. Our biggest even, The Retreat,
