Thank you! So grateful for the experience.

This was a super class-I would even like it to be longer for even more information

So much knowledge from the instructors. Great sharing from others

It was a wonderful opportunity to learn more about how to approach yoga with this population and I feel more empowered to work with oncology patients and survivors with the practice. The setting was beautiful, all the presenters were very knowledgeable and compassionate, and the group of fellow attendees was so sweet. It really was a great weekend and I hope this was the first of many workshops of its kind so we can continue to share the gifts of yoga to help our patients.
