Yoga

These Yoga/Relaxation classes are designed specifically for women who have experienced breast cancer.

The sessions are designed to promote healing through relaxation, stretching and strengthening. The program offers the benefit of posture improvement, increased flexibility, muscle tone and range of motion, which lead to improved self-confidence and a sense of well being after surgery.

Focusing on breathing and mediation techniques the classes offer methods of dealing with the stress, fatigue and weakness often associated with radiation and chemotherapy.

The Yoga Program is open to all women who have had a diagnosis of breast cancer. No previous experience with yoga is required. 
 
Classes are 1 hour and 15 minutes in length, on Mondays within the Marvelle Koffler Breast Centre, and are generally offered for a 10 week period. These classes are free of charge.

Call Gloria Furtado at 416-586-8799 for more information and to sign up.
 

Therapeutic Touch

This is a modern version of an ancient tradition of balancing energy fields. The belief is that all life forms are open energy systems that react to the environment. Working an inch or two from the client's body, the practitioner induces a relaxation response through the balancing of energy fields. Therapeutic touch is offered at no charge for patients who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
