This yoga workshop is designed to support students who are facing cancer; whether they are in treatment, post treatment or on the road to recovery. Yoga poses will be taught in such a way that they are accessible to all. Modifications, with the full use of props, will be demonstrated. Breath and meditation will also be incorporated into the practice. All are welcomed, including those with an established practice, those new to yoga and caregivers.
