Beth Wright Center
23 Commerce Park
Ellsworth, ME 04605


A free workshop for certified yoga instructors who wish to learn about a practice created especially for yoga patients.


In this workshop, participants will experience a Yoga for Cancer class while discussing best practices. Yoga for Cancer (y4c), a specialized yoga methodology, is tailored to address the specific physical and emotional needs left by cancer and its treatments. This unique approach focuses on how to stimulate the immune system through movement. It improves flexibility, strength, reduces anxiety and boosts overall well-being.
