Honors Unique Challenges That Come With Cancer Diagnosis

Virginia Beach, VA (April 2013)
– If you are looking for a way for you or a loved one to exercise with a cancer diagnosis, consider "Yoga for Cancer" offered by the Sentara Cancer Network.

Yoga For Cancer

Yoga for Cancer is focused on a gentle approach to body awareness and practice. In this support-based class, we honor your unique challenges with a cancer diagnosis through postures, breath-work, relaxation and connection to others. 

All who have been touched by cancer, including caregivers and  family members, benefit from the nurturing wisdom of yoga.
