Yoga can help reduce stress and provide a gentle form of exercise, which has been shown to aid cancer recovery and help reduce the risk of recurrence. Join VCU researcher and yoga instructor Mary Shall, P.T., Ph.D., for a series of four free yoga classes at the Downtown YMCA. These classes are designed to benefit cancer patients, survivors and caregivers, and registration preference will be given to those populations.
If you are currently in treatment or have recently had surgery, please provide a note from your physician stating that you may participate in our yoga classes.
