Yoga Thrive is a research-based, therapeutic yoga program for cancer survivors and their support persons. This gentle, 12-week yoga program is based on hatha yoga, but has been modified for cancer survivors; especially those who are experiencing stiffness, pain, stress or fatigue. Dr. Nicole Culos-Reed has been researching the benefits of this program since 2002. Past participants have found significant benefits in overall mood, stress levels, physical strength, and quality of life. CLICK THE LINK ABOVE TO LEARN MORE.
