Did you know medical research can now demonstrate the beneficial effects of yoga as a complementary therapy to cancer? Yoga can help with depression, anxiety, insomnia, pain & fatigue.

I just learned about an amazing organization called Yoga Bear, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to “promoting wellness & healing to the cancer community through the practice of yoga.”  In addition to providing FREE classes & online yoga videos, they also partner with yoga studios from around the country to offer FREE or donation-based restorative or gentle yoga classes (sometimes described as restful yoga for stressful times) for cancer patients, survivors & caregivers.

And this is really amazing… Yoga Bear has created The Healing Yoga Projectwhich brings yoga programs to hospitals across the US.  Currently, they offer FREE yoga classes at UCSD Moores Cancer Center in San Diego, CA & the Maimonidies Cancer Center in NYC.  To learn more about The Healing Yoga Project, click here to read an article from curetoday.com.  Also, if you’re interested in bringing The Healing Yoga Project to a hospital in your area, please contact them directly via email at michelle.robbins@yogabear.org and catherine@yogabear.org.  NAMASTE!
