Halle,
Sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your message. I appreciate your interest in my project. I will be happy to share my findings with you once it is completed. I'm aiming for December. I'm wondering if there is any way I can post the announcement/recruitment flyer or project description. I am still looking for women to interview. I'm halfway through.
Much thanks, Karyn Kirschbaum

Halle,
Hi. Thanks for asking. The class I am in teaching at Yoga Works in Laguna Beach is a free Restorative Yoga class (Wednesdays 1:30-3:00pm) I have been doing volunteer work with Greet the Day, a non-profit group that works to improve the quality of life for people affected by cancer. I have volunteered my time to teach Yoga and meditation and was also certified by them as an oncology massage therapist. Through Greet the Day I volunteer at oncology infusion centers where we give hand and foot massage. I wanted to have a place where I could also have a calm and peaceful place for all these wonderful people I meet to come for Yoga. Yoga Works was so generous to donate the space and time in their schedule for this free class. The class time is spent in supported poses using chairs, bolsters, blankets or the wall. A complete restorative Yoga sequence moves the spine in all directions, incorporating gentle supported back bends, twists, forward folds, gentle inverted poses .We focus on the breath and relaxing the nervous system. Restorative Yoga helps to relieve the effects of chronic stress. The class is sequenced so that each pose can be adjusted to accommodate each individual student to suit their specific needs. Practicing Restorative Yoga is beneficial for everyone but especially for those of us who are fatigued or stressed by illness or our daily lives. It is a joy to teach this class.

Hi Halle!
Thanks so much for your message. I would love to help out. I see from your thread you are interviewing survivors. If you need help, I can totally help with that. My day job is as a tv producer and I interview people and produce stories on their lives so it's totally in line with what you're doing. Maybe I can help you expand the project?

I'm happy to help with anything though so just let me know what you need.

Hi Halle. This is a great site. It's a shame more studios in my area (NJ) dont participate. I think the word needs to get out.

Halle,
thanks for responding to my message - I am currently interviewing women (face-to-face or by telephone) who are 45 and older, who began practicing yoga following their diagnosis and recovery. If you like, I can mail or email a project description, flyer, and consent form to you. In case you know of any women who meet the criteria and might be interested in participating, feel free to share the information. It is strictly voluntary and anonymity is guaranteed. I am hoping to finish by the end of this year. Once completed, it will be my pleasure to share the results with any individual or organizations interested.
best, Karyn K

Hi -- I'm a certified yoga teacher on my own time, and also a licensed psychotherapist working with cancer patients in my professional role.
I am wanting to combine the two more expertly. Are there yoga training courses you could recommend near the Washington DC area that would more specifically tailor my yoga teaching for cancer patients? Thanks! And thanks for all you do!

Not yet. My birthday was this last weekend and things were a bit crazy with a birthday party of over 140 people. So I hope to start this Friday with the meditation session and Saturday with Yoga.

Halle,

My best friend, Jessica Fox, has told me about your organization.
I am in definately ready to start recruiting gyms in Hillsborough County as soon as possible! My aunt is dying of cancer and this would be a wonderful opportunity to help cancer survivors who were fortunate enough to win the battle against this illness. I look forward to starting a chapter in Tampa Bay Area!

Hi Halle,

Challen Pressley told me that you may be looking for yoga instructors in the Portland area. I am available to teach in Portland and would love to be a part of your organization. Currently, you do not have a chapter in Portland and I'd like to speak with you about possibly organizing something up here. I am a first year medical student at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine. There are many yoga instructors at my school who would also be interested in volunteering for your organization. We also have a space at the school in which I think we could organize free yoga classes. Our school has also been actively involved in researching meditation and radiation therapy for breast cancer patients. Our school is located just below Organ Health and Science University which has an oncology ward. Anyhow, Challen has really inspired me to be a part of YogaBear and I'd love to have the opportunity to get involved. Namaste'
