The Cancer Wellness Center’s lecture and workshop topics provide a wide array of educational and experiential opportunities. We present new topics each quarter to help you and your loved ones become well informed as you navigate a cancer diagnosis.

Living with cancer can create so many stresses, which can in turn compromise immune functioning. In order to address both the physical and emotional components of distress, the Cancer Wellness Center offers evidence-based classes and individual wellness services that have been found to produce a physiological relaxation response.
Participants are able to attend group classes for mind, body and health, which include many disciplines such as yoga and meditation, as well as individual wellness appointments to help manage stress, emotional well-being and the side effects and symptoms of cancer.

A new kind of restorative yoga class that adds the relaxing and healing power of Reiki. Students will be led through gentle movements and classic restorative yoga poses which create gentle openings, facilitating natural alignment in the body. The body will be fully supported in each restorative pose allowing the muscles to relax and open while encouraging the release of tension. While in these poses students will be receiving hands-on Reiki, a form of energy therapy that enhances the natural healing system of the body and creates relaxation and a sense of well-being. The combination of Reiki and restorative poses offers a powerful session of healing and relaxation.
