Hi, Chrissi: Graduates of my "Teacher Training: Yoga for Breast Cancer Recovery & Beyond"© have a program "Healing Warrior Yoga" for cancer survivors at LifeStretchYoga Studios in Fremont and Miliptas in the Bay Area. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: 510-796-9642. The staff attended several types of cancer trainings and are excellent teachers. I hope they can work with you or guide you to an appropriate class elsewhere. Camille
Thank you for the information!
Have you found a spot for practice yet? If so, how is it working out for you?
I received a response from Cemile Armas a few days ago stating the following:
the share-a-mat program is no longer in effect due to very high demand. What i can do for you is to contact Fit From The Core Studio to see what they can accommodate for Yoga Bear. Although this is something we no longer provide, because of the miscommunication we have had, i'd like to see what i can do.
Hopefully I'll be matched up with this studio just a few miles away from my house soon...I've been waiting over a year now to enjoy yoga through Yoga Bear. I'm excited!
Cool, I am brand new to Yoga Bear in the Bay Area....and a relatively new teacher....doing my best to spread the word and get involved (especially when I hear ppl have been waiting a year for yoga offerings), it sounds like they are overwhelmed by demand, but it also sounds like you are on track to get into a studio. Let me know how it is working out for you by next week? Sometimes it just helps to have more ppl sending positive thoughts your way~
Thank you so much Kamala! I think its wonderful that you are a teacher, spreading the word and getting involved with Yoga Bear :) We will keep in touch!
There's also a free yoga class at Cancer Support Community in Mountain View on Wednesdays from 1:15-2:30pm. Here's the link for the program calendar: http://cancersupportcommunity.net/images/calendar_silicon_valley_ja....
I've also heard great things about the classes at Avalon sponsored by the Stanford Cancer Center. Avalon is a great place to practice (I practice there regularly). I hope you find a place to practice soon!
Thank you so much for the information! I will definitely look into participating in the free yoga class at Cancer Support Community. I appreciate it!
