Healing Yoga


This is a gentle, healing class for people recovering from cancer*, and those who are supporting a loved-one.  We use the powerful techniques of Kundalini Yoga to increase your vitality and help you deeply relax.  Scientific research suggests that yoga can help reduce the effects of stress, improve sleep, lower blood pressure, assist the immune system, relieve anxiety and depression, and help people find meaning and hope - so important for recovery.
