Harbor Room offers free yoga class

The Harbor Room Cancer and Chronic Conditions Resource Center is offering a free six-week series of gentle yoga instruction.

The “Breathe, Stretch, Relax” class will be held on Thursdays from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. beginning April 19, and continuing through May 24.

The class will be held at WillowBridge Center in Cambridge. WillowBridge Center/Haven DayCenter for Seniors/Total Wellness Coaching is generously donating the space for the class and the instructor, Amy Jensen, is donating her time.

“Breathe, Stretch, Relax” is appropriate for all levels of students. The class begins with a 10-15 minute centering practice which allows the student to slow down and prepare for the rest of the class. The middle part of the class consists of stretching and gently strengthening the body with an emphasis on using the breath as a guide. The last 15 minutes include a restorative practice that allows the body and mind to become quiet and to focus on healing.

Anyone affected by cancer, in any way, is invited to attend—whether a patient or a family member or supportive friend of someone with cancer.  There are a limited number of openings for this class so early registration is recommended.

To register, call Bonnie at the Harbor Room at 763-688-8415. Do not contact WillowBridge Center.
