Adult Programs

Support Groups – Cancer Pathways offers a variety of support groups for adults that each meet twice a month at our Seattle Clubhouse, on the Eastside, and Virginia Mason Medical Centers in Federal Way and Seattle. Before attending a group in our Seattle Clubhouse or on the Eastside, we ask that you complete an Individual Support Group Orientation. To get started with that process please click here to fill out the information form. Once we receive your completed form we will call you to schedule an orientation that will meet in the Clubhouse for Seattle groups or via phone for the Eastside groups. Our Virginia Mason groups are drop-in, though registration is appreciated for the Mindfulness Cognitive Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Arts Groups.

8-Week Yoga Series: Yoga for Improved Health and Wellness

Kick off 2017 by exploring and developing a yoga practice designed to connect your body, mind and spirit. Learn how to listen for internal cues, practice movement (asanas), and modify your practice based on your unique body needs and desires. We will also utilize different breathing techniques (pranayama), to ease congestion, and to purify and awaken your respiratory, circulatory and digestive systems, as well as the subtle energy channels.

Current Cancer Pathways participants can click here to register. If you are new to Cancer Pathways, click here to complete a New Participant form. When we receive the form we will give you a call to set up a time for an interview with a social worker. Please give us a call with any questions at 206-709-1400.
