Mind | Body | Stress Reduction

Cancer Support Community recognizes the role that stress reduction plays in recovering from the effects of cancer treatment. Designed to help promote a sense of relaxation and well being, we find that our participants enjoy these programs because it increases their sense of control and helps them live in the present moment. Similar to our other groups, stress reduction programs are offered at a variety of times to meet different schedules. See class offerings and descriptions below.

We offer a variety of Yoga classes at all four of our state wide locations. These classes are designed specifically to serve those affected by cancer by reducing stress, and enhancing focus and relaxation. Class offerings and times vary by location.
