Get help Group Activities Yoga classes About our classes Integration of yoga with conventional cancer care can support and nurture the physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing of cancer patients. The yoga classes provided at Bloomhill are gentle and our teachers are experienced in working with people with cancer. Different styles of Yoga are provided, with Vinyasa, or ‘flow yoga’ which connects one posture to the next using the breath. Yin Yoga is a restorative form of yoga which provides a series of slow, long holds and mat-based postures that stretch out the connective tissues and facia in the body. Some of the potential benefits of a yoga practice for people with cancer include increased freedom of movement, particularly important for lymphoedema, increased physical strength and enhanced well-being and stress reduction. Yoga can also assist with fatigue and energy levels and generally help with crating a sense of calm or relaxation. Classes are open to all Bloomhill clients. No bookings necessary. Just talk with the teacher prior to the class to advise them if you have any special requirements or concerns. Yoga Schedule WHEN: Tuesday + Thursdays TIME: 9.15 am - 10.15 am No bookings are required. Yoga mats will be supplied. Small Group Yoga Practice About our small group class These small group Yoga classes are designed for clients to be able to access more private support and an opportunity for one on one instruction with a yoga teacher who is undertaking additional training as a Yoga therapist. These sessions will have only 4 participants and will provide a safe, supported and individualised class for those unfamiliar to yoga or who would benefit from a more private setting than a large class. Yoga teacher, Kellie Shanahan will tailor the class to your specific needs and requirements, allowing you to truly practice yoga within your own comfort zone. Kellie brings a compassionate and nurturing quality to her yoga teaching, with a strong focus on safety and alignment. She is a dedicated and passionate practitioner, who brings a personal and supportive approach to her teachings. Having personally experienced her own health challenges with breast cancer, she loves sharing her discoveries with others in the hope they too can benefit from these practices. From her experience, as both a teacher and a student, Kellie has learnt to adapt and tailor yoga for the unique needs of people living with and beyond cancer. Small Group Yoga Schedule WHEN: Mondays TIME: 9.00 am - 10.00 am COST: $15 per class Bookings are essential. Contact our Wellness Centre to secure your spot.
