Description

During cancer treatment, you may experience your physical body in a different way. Yoga can help you reconnect to your body, treat yourself with compassion and loving-kindness, and feel the strength and light that you carry inside. Dance/movement therapy can support this process as you re-engage with your body safely and joyfully while connecting with experiences that may be difficult to describe in words.

This online workshop combines dance with the grounding practice of yoga. In the workshop, an MSK yoga instructor and two MSK dance/movement therapists will guide you through activities and exercises to help you feel more at ease in your body and bring you to a place of awareness, forgiveness, and acceptance.

Audience

This class is open to people who have been treated for cancer and their caregivers.
