yoga4cancer

Did you know that Southeast Nebraska Cancer Center offers yoga4cancer (y4c) classes? These oncology-based yoga classes are taught by Shelly Olson, a certified y4c professional. The classes provide safe and effective yoga techniques to help cope with cancer treatment side effects.

Research has shown yoga can reduce the side effects of cancer and its treatments and possibly reduce the risk of recurrence. Cancer survivors and patients may need specific support from their yoga professionals. Y4c’s global network of trained teachers, resources, research initiatives and strong partnerships are focused on providing the quality of support those cancer survivors need and want.

Classes are currently restricted due to COVID guidelines. If interested in learning more about this class, please submit the form below.
