“I believe that this course will provide an opportunity for breast cancer patients to regain control, confidence, strength and a sense of well-being. It will provide another sense of community and their recovery will be a more positive experience”.

The more teachers who are trained in Pink Ribbon Recuperative Yoga, the more survivors can be helped.”
