As you may know, Yoga Bear has been working with hospitals across the country to bring yoga into the hospital for cancer patients.

We are expanding this program, and it's time to give it a proper name!

Here are some ideas we've had, but we'd love to have your input!

- Healing Yoga Project
- Serenity Project
- Healthy Bodies, Happy Minds
- Saadhana Project (sanskrit for instrument leading straight to a goal, guiding well)

Do you have any ideas? Suggestions?

Yoga-Bear-Care project :-)
here's one from @Crazy_Bliss on twitter: Open Arms Healing Open Hearts
This is what comes to mind: Yoga Bear Hugs

Much of what may be done in hospitals will be one-to-one with very ill people. Yoga takes on the quality of a hug when it's classes are one or very small. We cancer patients are also learning to give ourselves hugs through yoga, by staying 'in' our bodies.

If you want more ideas, I think about what Bears do and the symbols and energy associated with "Bear Medicine". Looking into the rich cultural
meanings of "Bear", you may find some other words that come up:
Pragmatic, and methodical the Bear is the one to call when a steady hand is needed. The Bear's practicality and level-headedness makes him/her an excellent business partner. Usually the voice of reason in most scenarios, the Bear is a good balance for Owls. The Bear is also gifted with an enormous heart, and a penchant for generosity. However, one might not know it as the Bear tends to be very modest, and a bit shy. In a loving environment this Native American animal symbol showers love and generosity in return. Further, the Bear has a capacity for patience and temperance, which makes him/her excellent teachers and mentors. Left to his/her own devices the bear can be skeptical, sloth, small-minded and reclusive. Read more about the Native American bear here.
I agree with Sylvia - if we want to get the word out more and more about YB, it would be best to keep "Yoga Bear" in the name for the hospital program so that we build lots of equity in that name!

I like Yoga Bear Hugs!

I vote for Healing Yoga Project... that's what it is all about. Healing the mind, body and soul.
I like Inner Strength Yoga takes lots of inner strength to fight cancer (any type) and the mind to tell yourself that your not going to let this cancer take you away.
i like happy
yogababies as a new name it has charisma
I like the simplicity of Healing Yoga Project. That's exactly what it is. Straight forward and simple. As a yoga teacher for people with cancer and a two-time survivor myself, I feel the simple beautiful word, healing, says it all.
Yoga PRN

PRN is an acronym of a latin phrase commonly used in health care roughly meaning take/give as needed

I like Yoga Bear Hugs also
