As part of my yoga therapist hours requirement, I had been auditing Yoga for Cancer Survivorship class taught by Lorien Neargarder, RYT 500. Upon hearing her impending departure from California, I felt attending her class is imperative. She artfully integrates poses to help with circulation, flexibility, and relaxation. How does one attend to circulation without hard cardio? How do you harness renewed energy when one is exhausted ? You don’t have to be a cancer survivor to want the same !
The recovery class is offered through Stanford Hospital but taught out of most beautiful studio … She will be missed here.
I wanted to be there for her last class among many other events but … it’s alright, family duty calls. Instead I will teach my mom to recover with the help of capable team members of doctors, nurses, PTs and … me, the yoga therapist. What better opportunity – it’s like my mother decided I needed a real life case study and became a guinea pig for medical advances – seriously ! Thank you mom, hang in there!
Beam me up and over the Pacific Ocean!
