About Gentle Yoga

This 6-week class, led by Yoga instructor Cecilia Beach (RYT), is limited to 12 survivors.

Classes are 75 minutes in length and participants get the most benefit when present for the full duration of the class. Please respect your fellow classmates – arrive a little early so class can start on time without interruptions!

Gentle Yoga is designed for breast and gynecological cancer survivors to help create freedom, space, and confidence.

This class will use guided meditation, breath work, gentle movements, and therapeutic / restorative poses. Focus will be on reducing stress, fatigue, and pain, and finding creativity in movements within a safe environment.
