Breast Cancer is the reason for Shine Yoga. It came out of my devastating experience as a breast cancer survivor. Each year, Paige organizes a special event to raise money for the amazing Breast Cancer Network of WNY. I’ve taught at the BCN. It’s a beautiful, supportive place, and what I love most about it is that it creates community, it gives survivors and people who are going through treatment support, resources and each other.
This year’s special donation class is in that same vein. It recognizes that cancer leaves deep wounds and it celebrates that we heal them together.
On the 17th, Paige and Sara will co-teach a class that recognizes the deep wounds of cancer ( and life) and celebrates our ability to move past them with a little help from our friends. Sara and Paige’s regularly scheduled classes that evening (Power, Slow Flow, and Restorative) will be canceled, but as this is a longer class it will count towards two jumpstart days.
Celebrations continue at The Grange post class, where we will be feasting on happy hour priced foods and special cocktails all evening long.
Shine will donate $10 per person attending the class to the BCN. If you have a class pass or membership, we would love an additional donation, but your membership or pass will pay for the class. Drop in price is $20 as usual.
P.S. October 11th is the 6 year anniversary of my diagnosis. I would love if you could be there to help me celebrate making it through and changing my life.
