Online Programs

Well on the Web is an extension of the programs available in the Wellspring Centres across the country, enabling those who live far from a physical centres, or those not well enough to leave their homes, with access to Wellspring’s special brand of care and support.

Yoga for Cancer Recovery

Yoga is an ancient and well-known health practice. It can help exercise control over physical and emotional well-being by combining movements, breathing, stretching, body poses and meditation practice. Yoga for Cancer Recovery is specifically for patients who are in the process of regaining their general health and wellness, as well as for caregivers of cancer patients. If you are experiencing significant adverse physical symptoms that require a modified approach, you should consider attending Gentle Yoga for Symptom Management. Although still gentle in style, Yoga for Cancer Recovery is designed to provide a fulfiling 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 members can follow along only to the extent they are able.

Yoga is offered on a drop-in basis, once a week.

Although Yoga is available at Wellspring centres multiple times each week, we ask that members refrain from attending more than once a week in order to accommodate the demand.

 

There will be no Yoga on Saturday, September 7th, 2019. In it’s place, we will be holding a Chi Life session from 10-11. This session will be held on a drop in basis, and we hope to see you there.

Drop in program
