Yoga for Breast Cancer Begins in May at Restoring Balance Mind & Body

Beginning in May, Restoring Balance Mind & Body will offer Yoga for Breast Cancer to provide a place for self-discovery and healing. YMEDICA, in partnership with Mayo Clinic, has developed a yoga protocol using evidence-based studies to ensure maximum safety and effect. Yoga improves quality of life and eases physical and emotional pain associated with diagnosis and treatment. This gentle practice is accessible to all, as it takes into account the fatigue and weakness often experienced during treatment. Yoga for Breast Cancer is a gift of self-care that goes beyond the physical practice during a vulnerable time. Moving through class, the focus is less about the shape of a pose and more about the experience of the pose in the body in each moment. Small class size (six max) offers the opportunity for individualized attention.

Yoga for Breast Cancer is taught by Kim Carter, MA, RYT, who has been making yoga accessible to those with unique challenges for 13 years.

Cost per class: $10. Location: 2045 S. Vineyard Ave., Ste. 139, Mesa. For more information, call/text Kim Carter at 253-549-5342 or email
