Yoga and Cancer

Monday, June 19, 2017, 04:30pm - 05:30pm

Meredith Kolodze

Cancer survivors and caregivers are welcome to participate in these free classes. No yoga experience is necessary and classes are free to all participants newly diagnosed, in cancer treatment or recovery as well as caregivers. Classes will include yoga postures, flowing movements and pranayama (focus on breath) to help students achieve relaxation and mobility in everyday life. Conscious effort to link breath with movement helps relieve tension and helps students gain flexibility and improve strength in the body.

Meredith Kolodze delmage meredithMeredith completed her 200 hour training at the Yoga Life Institute in NH. She has also completed the Yoga 4 Cancer Training with Tari Prinster. As an oncology social worker, Meredith believes that caring for the whole person is essential to our health and well being. So often when we are ill, the focus is on medications, and we don't realize that there are many other things that can assist us in living with, or recovering from, cancer. Meredith felt that there was a place for yoga in oncology care and set about finding a way to connect her passions as a social worker and a yogini. She is currently teaching a class for patients at Exeter Hospital through their Cancer Well Fit Program. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, spending time with family and friends, her crazy cairn terrier, Jack, cat, Agave Aphrodite, and five chickens.

Funding for Classes is provided by SATYA. SATYA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Our mission is to support teachers who are inspired and committed to providing specialized yoga instruction in under-served populations, to provide resources which link qualified instructors to aspiring yogis in a variety of settings with unique considerations, and to honor the many truths of yoga and its power to support the mind, body and spirit in all human beings.
