    DescriptionYCat Yoga© (Yoga for Cancer Therapy) is a guided yoga experience designed to honor the needs of each individual exactly where they are in treatment and recovery. Students will explore movement, breathing and relaxation meditation practices as tools to access the innate wisdom of our own bodies and make empowered choices in healing in a safe and comfortable environment.

    Developed by a nurse and backed by evidence-based research, the intention of this offering is to teach self-regulating techniques that can relieve the distressing side effects of cancer physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically while offering joy in daily living.

    The movements in this class can be modified to suit all levels of physical ability. No yoga experience is required.

    Taught by Amelia Coffaro, RYT-200, a cancer survivor and lifelong yoga practitioner.

    Fee: Free through funding by the Columbia St. Mary’s Foundation

    Registration is required as space is limited. Open to CSM Cancer Center patients, both in and out of treatment, with clearance from their Cancer Center physician. To register, contact:

    Laura Stratte, Survivorship Navigator, 414-298-7247
