Therapeutic Yoga

Support for the Cancer Journey

Therapeutic Yoga is a gentle movement practice that focuses on reducing stress and promoting holistic health. Medical research has shown that the regular practice of yoga techniques positively affect the health of body and mind in a variety of ways.

Originating in India, this approach integrates gentle movements, mindful stretching, deep breathing, and relaxation techniques to promote overall wellness. Yoga will help activate your parasympathetic nervous system’s ability to support your healing process. You will make gains in strength, flexibility, immune function and stress reduction.

No prior experience is needed. Our experienced instructors are registered graduates of a Yoga Alliance teacher-training program and can modify the practice to include all levels of fitness. All are welcome. Come and learn how yoga can help you to create, stimulate, and maintain an optimum state of physical, emotional and spiritual health.

Maureen has met all the educational requirements needed to be registered with the national Yoga Alliance and has pursued additional studies in the therapeutic applications of yoga.
