A Note from your teacher

TT-logo.jpg

A few years ago, my cousin was going through treatment for breast cancer.  She was talking to me about the side effects of treatment and how nobody told her about them.  As she was listing her side effects (ROM, fatigue, anxiety, lymphedema, to name a few), I realized that yoga could be helpful for every one of them.  I hoped to one day bring yoga to this population.  Well, the time has now come.  I completed my 75 hour training in June of 2024.  I am looking to provide classes at low or no cost to all of those who are on their cancer journey.  As my teacher, Tari Prinster says, "Cancer takes your breath away.  Yoga gives it back."  I hope to help you to find your breath again.  - Jen Akob
