Yoga for Improved Health and Wellness

Yoga classes at Cancer Pathways are designed with the specific needs of cancer patients and caregivers in mind. No experience is necessary. Our free classes are open to cancer patients and caregivers of all ability levels. Please wear comfortable clothing and come as you are. Bring a water bottle, blanket, pillow, journal/pen, and your own mat, if you prefer. We do provide some mats and a few yoga props.

Our instructor is Cindy Jaffe, RYT 200, who teaches yoga in group classes and private sessions in Seattle. She specializes in "yoga for longevity," working with students who have limited mobility and health concerns to regain physical capabilities, move more quickly, and to rediscover love for themselves.

Gentle Yoga for Cancer Patients and Caregivers:
Yoga for Improved Health and Wellness

Fridays, September 15-November 17. 12:00-1:00pm
Seattle Clubhouse (MAP)

This free class is open to cancer patients and caregivers of all ability levels. You will be guided through a gentle, nurturing yoga practice. We will also work with meditation and pranayama (breath control techniques). All three of these practices can help you to still the mind and calm the body. Our intent is to give you the tools to start applying these techniques in your daily life - to support you with any challenges that you are facing. No prior yoga experience is necessary.

*There will be no class on September 22nd.


Restorative Yoga Mini-Retreat....
For cancer patients and caregivers

Saturday, October 14th.  9:30-11:00am
Seattle Clubhouse (MAP)

Feeling stressed out?  Having trouble sleeping? Need a vacation from it all?  Join us for a Restorative Yoga Mini-Retreat.

During this time you will have the opportunity to slow down and create space in your body through passive stretching.  During these long holds, your muscles relax deeply and your mind quiets with breathing techniques.

It's a completely different feeling from other types of yoga classes because props are used to support your body instead of your muscles.  This restorative practice is very mellow, making it a good complement to your active daily activities and an excellent antidote to stress.

Restorative yoga may also help you recover from illness and injury or overcome emotional depression and anxiety that are caused by traumatic events such as being diagnosed with cancer, divorce, loss of job, and/or death of a beloved.

No experience is necessary.  Come, relax and enjoy!
