Receiving a cancer diagnosis, being in treatment and on the journey out of recovery are all trying and hard times for any human being, mentally, physically and emotionally.
This time will pass but in the midst of trauma and overwhelm we need to have an anchor in life that helps us make the right choices and keeps us from being swept away. keeps us in touch with our own process. Helps us to remember to be kind and compassionate to ourselves and allows us a space, just to breath.
These classes allow the body time to rest, to restore, to heal before we dive back in thinking we can instantly move the way we used to. It needs time to be heard, listened to, respected and loved. For all you have learnt and grown into through your experience to be integrated kindly into your life.
The body has changed, is changing and needs the nourishment to support this process, not shoved and pushed and forced back into what it was.
Yoga classes for people living with cancer are gentle and flowing with the body and the breath moving in harmony. The routines are simple and yet they nourish instantly from deep within, so the healing happens from the inside out.
The classes create a safe space for our bodies to soften, so we may embrace the pain and trauma and in turn let go rather than fighting and struggling against.
Each class has a meditative feel to them to provide an opening that quietens the mind and soothes the body, thus creating a genuine healing process ignited by you.
