Yoga for Cancer with Ellen Hanley
Wednesdays & Fridays 10:30-11:45am
Whether you are a cancer patient, survivor, newly diagnosed, in treatment, gathering strength or thriving, yoga can further your recovery and help you feel whole again. You may even find new confidence you have never known. But not all yoga classes are right for cancer patients and survivors. And for some, taking a yoga class can be intimidating because of the unique physical and emotional needs that cancer & its treatments bring. Yoga for Cancer is tailored to address the specific needs of cancer patients and survivors. These classes are not one-size-fits-all, nor simply a gentle yoga class.
This class will:
- build strength & flexibility in safe ways
- stimulate your immune system & build bone density
- detox the body and cultivate a sense of well-being
- create hope & community
- empower all to take control & enhance their lives
Ellen Hanley is a 200RYT and trained and completed her yoga4cancer with Tari Prinster at Kripalu.
Restorative/Yoga Nidra with Mark Hunsicker & Michelle Kaiser
Sunday, Nov.22 3-4:30pm and Sunday, Dec 27 3-4:30pm
Give yourself the gift of letting go with Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra combined into one class. Michelle will use props to facilitate deep relaxation with a handful of restful postures. Mark will guide you through a practice designed to bring forth a deep sense of peace and renewal where your only requirement is to let go to the sounds of music and voice. Both practices will allow the body to heal and replenish itself by stimulating the immune and endocrine systems, lowering the heart rate and blood pressure, and triggering the parasympathetic nervous system, which calms and restores the body. By doing less instead of more, allow your inner healing capacity to activate and uncover the deepest core of yourself, the essential wisdom within.
Every level welcome.

The Holy Science of Yoga Workshop with Crystal Hetrick
Sunday December 6 and Sunday January 3 3-5pm
Saturday Febrauary 6 and Saturday March 5 3-5pm
“Yoga is the science of Self-Realization. The asanas (postures) found within the yoga system are a small, yet powerful component for the practitioner, but they are just that – a small component within the vast science.” – Chandra Om
This workshop is an introductory discussion on the Science of Yoga. We will briefly cover the 8 Limbs (Patanjali’s Eightfold Path) as well as the 9 Forms and Branches of Yoga (i.e., Hatha, Raja, Kriya, Bhakti, etc.).
The foundation of yoga according to the yogis and yoginis are the Yamas and Niyamas, the moral and ethical guidelines of yoga. The emphasis in this workshop will be on the Yamas and Niyamas and include a pranayama (breath-control), and meditation practice.
“The Yogi counters the lower actions with higher actions. This is Yama.” – Chandra Om
Through the practice and observance of the Yamas and Niyamas, the mind begins to settle, which leads to meditation, and ultimately spiritual bliss!
This workshop is beneficial to beginners and experienced practitioners alike.
Workshop price: $25 each session
