Use of Gentle Yoga for Survivors
The Christina Phipps Foundation fosters the use of yoga as part of the restorative and rehabilitative process following breast cancer surgery. Our instructors are trained to recognize that such surgery will often result in lingering pain and a reduced range of motion. They bring a gentle yoga approach to each of their students and remain sensitive to individual limitations.
Gentle classes have a varied sequence. This class is open to all levels: especially for new students, seniors, students experiencing injury, or those wanting to slow down. Accessible to any and all body types. Posture, meditation, and movement are slowly introduced. Learn alignment and simple breathing techniques. Use props to support your poses. Feel comfortable in the foundational postures that are offered. Class will have slow transitions between standing and floor series to meet each student where they are. Prenatal friendly.
