Gratitude Yoga this Thanksgiving

Gratitude Yoga this Thanksgiving
Hi, Yogis! These are challenging times, but with the support of each other we have so much to be grateful for. Effective now, Illinois enters into Tier 3 Resurgence Mitigations, which means we will pause our in-studio yoga classes. Our amazing NEXT yoga instructors will continue to teach virtual classes. Because it’s difficult to replace the heat and humidity in our homes, we will host a few “Private Instruction” Traditional Hot classes which are limited to 5 students. Please look at our temporary schedule at next-yoga.com.

They are mostly found in lotions or bath gels for topical use. If you know how to use them properly, they not only have calming effects as aromatherapy, but health benefits as well. Always check the label and ask your doctor if you’re not sure if they’re OK for you to use.

Yoga can be restorative and gentle and you likely can, and should, exercise at all stages of your cancer diagnosis — before, during, and after radiation, hormonal, and targeted therapies, as well as during and after chemotherapy and surgery.
