with Leia Morrison Wednesdays 1-1:45 p.m. at the Sanctuary Yoga Studio. This class is for those who either have undergone cancer treatment or are currently in active treatment. A gentle group class that involves techniques drawn from yoga, pilates, strength training and relaxation techniques. This class is perfect for those experiencing treatment-related symptoms such as post-surgical pain, limited range of motion, sleep-issues, fatigue, hormonal issues and digestive problems. All surgical incisions need to be healed and a platelet count of at least 20,000 is required. All are welcome at any phase of treatment as long as they meet the above criteria. Leia Morrison is a Yoga Alliance certified instructor with 11 years of teaching experience, with an emphasis on yoga for cancer patients. She has studied under Laura Kupperman of the Yoga For Survivors program and is currently an intern in her program.
You can also register for this class through Western State Colorado University Extended Studies program.
The Living Journeys Resource Support Network also provides a list of survivors and caregivers so that if someone is going through treatment, or is a caregiver to a loved one, they have a list of people who have been through cancer and can share their experiences, perspective and perhaps referrals to resources they found helpful.
