Why yoga for cancer? 
Whether you are currently in active treatment of cancer, a cancer survivor, newly diagnosed, in treatment, gathering strength or thriving, a tailored yoga practice is found to support the realities of cancer in your life. The practices are curated with YOU and your unique needs in mind, while bringing a sense of Self, empowerment and community, as a life-changing resource.  It is important to take a break from daily life in order to focus on yourself, and gain clarity.


*Pre-registration packet is required, available at the Center or contact hello@melissarusk.com

Sessions are led by Melissa Rusk, ERYT200/RYT500 and Yoga Medicine® Certified Therapeutic Specialist.  Melissa has multiple certifications including Yoga4Cancer(y4c), Duke University Integrative Health Mindful Yoga for Cancer, and is a Certified Meditation Instructor.
