Getting involved

Improve the lives of low income and under-served cancer survivors

Whether you are a certified yoga4cancer teacher, cancer survivor, caregiver, healthcare provider or compassionate human, there are many ways to get involved with the yoga4cancer mission. Much progress has been made within the past two decades to bring yoga to the lives of cancer patients and survivors, but there is more work to be done. We welcome your motivation and compassion. Together we can make a greater impact.

Below are 5 concrete ways you can help!

Money makes the world go around.

#1 - Fundraise:

Good intentions and genuine compassion are the sparks that can light our efforts aflame. We must also put in the hard work and generate support in order for our efforts to grow. Adequate funding ensures longevity and sustainability for the yoga4cancer mission. And ensures we are able to support as many cancer survivors as possible.

  • Launch a crowd fundraising campaign.
  • Organize a in person fundraising event like a donation yoga class or cocktail party.
  • Write a grant or solicit donations from foundations or large donors
  • Make a tax-deductible donation yourself.

Any and all funds should be directed to the Retreat Project (our non-profit partner).  All donations are tax deductible and 100% used to fund programs.

About the Book

The survivor yoga class has been an emotional and physical bridge to my recovery. I started my yoga with the group before my chemo.  This kind of support cannot be found in a ” regular” yoga class.

In general, limitations, life-long side effects and vulnerabilities imposed by surgeries and cancer treatments are a kept secret. When the treatments are finished, you get to go home, alone, to sort out the mess. During my own recovery, I observed that yoga helped me in ways I did not anticipate. It continues to be my personal powerful tool of survival, or, as I now call my thrival.
