Yoga Bear


I am continuously being blown away by the caring people in our world. I'm lucky in that some of these caring people are my friends :)

Blanca, a social worker and author of Sweet Lime and Savory Snack, just announced her involvement in Yoga Bear. This non-profit agency has a simple but highly worthwhile mission: to link cancer survivors to yoga as a way of promoting their healing and well being ... and best of all, the yoga memberships are free! How amazing is that?!

If any one is, or knows, a cancer survivor interested in yoga please refer them to Blanca at Blanca@yogabear.org or ask them to join the Yoga Bear community at www.yogabear.org.

  5. Jen they have this where I live too and it is such a fantastic program.

    I tried to do it when I was first diagnosed but with the chemo and all that shit, I just couldn't do it. But thanks to this reminder, maybe I will look at it again in the fall.

    Love Renee xoxox
