Yoga is an ancient and well-known health practice. It can help exercise control over physical and emotional well-being by combining movements, breathing, stretching, body poses and meditation practice. Yoga for Cancer Recovery is specifically for patients who are in the process of regaining their general health and wellness, as well as for caregivers of cancer patients. If you are experiencing significant adverse physical symptoms that require a modified approach, you should consider attending Gentle Yoga for Symptom Management. Although still gentle in style, Yoga for Cancer Recovery is designed to provide a fulfiling yoga experience while also transferring skills and techniques to support self-managed yoga practice outside of Wellspring. The program includes demonstration of various yoga poses that use meditation and breathing techniques and members can follow along only to the extent they are able.

Yoga is offered on a drop-in basis, once a week

Although Yoga is available at Wellspring centres multiple times each week, we ask that members refrain from attending more than once a week in order to accommodate the demand.

Drop-In Program: This program requires no ongoing commitment and is especially helpful for those who are not feeling well, are in treatment or are coping with symptoms that make commitment difficult
