Free Yoga Classes for Cancer Patients
Restorative yoga classes for cancer patients are offered weekly and are open to patients, survivors, and their families or caregivers. Classes are held every Saturday morning from 8:15 to 9:00 am at the Oxford Community Center, 4 Maple Road, Oxford MA, and on Wednesdays from Noon to 1:00 pm at Saint Vincent Cancer & Wellness Center, One Eaton Place, Worcester MA.
The Restorative Yoga program is a complementary therapy that is designed to help reduce lymphedema, increase range of motion, and soothe neuropathies that may occur during all stages of treatment and recovery. This program also promotes relaxation which is a vital element in healing, as it brings emotional and physical relief from stress through moving meditation and gentle yoga stretches.
These programs have been made possible through PinkHippy.Org, a 501(c)(3) non-profit holistic service and support organization that serves breast cancer patients, survivors and their families throughout Central MA, Northeastern CT, and Northwestern RI. Classes are free for those undergoing treatment or in recovery from breast cancer.
