Share

Description

This six-week virtual yoga basics class will focus on balance and relaxation. Our MSK yoga therapist will lead a 30-minute moderately paced mat practice followed by a 30-minute restorative practice. In the mat practice, you will learn exercises that stretch and strengthen your muscles and improve your balance. In the slower-paced restorative practice, you will use props to support a deeper stretch. Poses are held for a longer period to calm the body and decrease fatigue. Each class will end with a soothing guided meditation and simple, relaxing breathing exercises.

Audience

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