National Cancer Survivors Day

COMMUNITY MOVEMENT OF SPIRIT, MIND AND BODY

It is a CELEBRATION for those who have survived, an INSPIRATION for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of SUPPORT for families, and an OUTREACH to the community. The YMCA of Greater Westfield will be hosting a free LET YOUR YOGA DANCE day to honor cancer survivors and to show the community that life after a cancer diagnosis can be inspiring. It is a day for everyone, whether you’re a cancer survivor, a family member, friend, or medical professional. This day offers an opportunity for all people living with a history of cancer – including America’s 15.5 million cancer survivors – to connect with each other, celebrate milestones, and recognize those who have supported them along the way. It is also a day to draw attention to the needs of cancer survivor’s ongoing challenges of regaining strength, overcoming fatigue, and enhancing functional ability to do everyday tasks. Our Y is committed to serving individuals and their families living with, through and beyond cancer.

Join us Saturday, June 3rd, 9:15- 10:30AM

Let Your Yoga Dance is a joyous celebration of spirit, mind, and body. It is a movement based practice that everyone can participate in. In “LYYD” we combine gentle yoga, user friendly dance, and all genres of music and build an intentional community. There becomes a moving connection between dancers, where self-expression, laughter, and feelings of gratitude come alive. As we move through the seven energy centers of the body, the heart pumps, the brain is challenged, strength and balance are improved, and feelings of love and compassion are shared! Students receive an aerobic workout without even knowing it! A Let Your Yoga Dance class generally lasts for one hour. All bodies are able to participate in this fun-filled practice. There is no required floor “work” and there are always chairs available for those who wish to move from a seated position or simply take a break. This is Free to the cancer survivorship community.
