    - Meet the Herdmans - they lie, cheat, and love to give clonks on the head. They are, without a doubt, the worst kids in the history of the world. So no one is prepared when this outlaw family invades church one Sunday and decides to take over the annual Christmas pageant. None of the Herdmans has ever heard the Christmas story before - it's all news to them! So they're convinced that the Wise Men should bring pizza and that the Angel of the Lord is straight out of a comic book. Everyone worries that this year's pageant will be horrible, but they are sure to make it the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever. Adapted from the beloved novel by Barbara Robinson, this play is sure to be fun for the whole family!

    Yoga for Life’s Yoga for Cancer classes:

    Build strength and flexibility in safe ways;
    Stimulate the immune system;
    Build bone density;
    Detoxify the body;
    Cultivate a sense of well-being;
    Create community, gratitude, and hope;
    Empower each participant to take control of and enhance their lives.
    Whether you are a cancer patient or a long-time survivor; whether you are newly diagnosed or in treatment; whether you are gathering strength or looking at cancer in the rear-view mirror; our Yoga for Cancer classes are for you. Yoga supports your recovery and helps you feel whole again. Yoga cultivates strength, flexibility, and balance at all phases of your cancer journey. Yoga may even reveal a sense of gratitude and confidence you have not previously known.

    But not all yoga classes are right for cancer patients. And for some, taking a yoga class can be intimidating because of the unique physical and emotional needs that accompany cancer and its treatments. Yoga for Cancer classes offer breath and movement practices that are tailored to address the specific needs of cancer patients and survivors. Yoga for Cancer classes are neither “one size fits all” nor a basic gentle yoga class. Taught by teachers who received specialized training to teach yoga to cancer patients and survivors in various phases of treatment and recovery, Yoga for Life’s Yoga for Cancer classes are perfect for you! We hope you’ll give them a try.

    Click “Schedule and Class Info/Weekly Calendar” above
    to register for the FREE Yoga for Cancer classes.

    In order to provide a safe and effective experience for all participants, general information about your cancer diagnosis and treatment must be provided before you can participate in class. Your time at the studio will be most productive if you complete our Medical Information Form in advance of your first class and bring it with you to the studio.
