This gentle style of yoga is for patients who are in the process of regaining their general health and wellness, as well as for those who are experiencing significant adverse physical symptoms that require a modified approach. Wellspring Yoga is designed to provide a fulfilling yoga experience while also transferring skills and techniques to support self-managed yoga practice outside of Wellspring. The program includes demonstration of various yoga poses that use meditation and breathing techniques and participants follow along only to the extent they are able.
Nutrition is important at any stage of the cancer journey. Wellspring’s Nourish program provides many different sessions on cancer and nutrition using latest research to teach the fundamentals of good nutritional practices for cancer patients and, in many instances, includes cooking demonstrations, food sampling and take-home recipes. If you, or someone you are caring for is experiencing side-effects of treatment that make eating difficult, or want to know more about how healthy eating can aid in cancer recovery and reduce the risk of cancer coming back, then these sessions are for you.
The programs above are offered on Wednesdays at The Sobey Cancer Support Centre in Halifax and Saturdays at Sobeys Clayton Park, 287 Lacewood Drive, Halifax, Nova Scotia.
