Thanks for the comments about my profile photo! I started practicing yoga at the request of my oncologist - integrative medicine. Without cancer, I would not have found yoga. Every cloud has a silver lining!

I teach cancer survivors yoga at the Pink Ribbon Yoga retreat in August on the beach in NC. This is our 6th year. I believe it's no different from teaching anyone yoga. You make sure you're aware of any issues they are dealing with, you instruct them to honor their bodys and you present the class with love and compassion. I usually do a gentle class with very little forward bending. Most of our participants are mature women who have had breast cancer and may have other physical challenges. The retreat is well attended and has received very high ratings by the attendees. Last year 100% of the ladies reported a reduction in stress and pain levels.

Does anyone know how long it takes to get accepted into one of the yoga studios in NYC or Jersey City area? I know there is a wait list which I signed up for but if anyone knows how long the wait is...I'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

Well -- I'm not sure why Yoga Bear requested me as a friend, but okay! I'm now officially a friend of Yoga Bear.

It's my pleasure. I'm actually looking to branch out and teach in studios in NYC. Are you aware of any studios that are hiring? Thanks for the lovely feedback!

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.

Awe! Very sweet! I actually have five cats, but I don't always like to admit that I have so many (think 'cat lady'). Thanks!

I heard about Yoga Bear in the newspaper and told my colleagues who participate in Tennis for Life, a wonderful organization for breast cancer survivors. Most of us are looking for activities that will help in our recovery and/or prevent recurrences. More info at www.tennisforlife.org

I tried to sign up for the free yoga calsses mentioned in natural awakenings, but after you fill out the form there is no send button.

Are you the instructor? Where are you located? When? :)
Sorry for all the questions. A fellow survivor & I were looking for something like this to get ourselves back on track. We were so excited to see the Yoga Bear! You were the only Georgia person I saw on the list....lol.
