MB is happy to announce that she will offer a monthly yoga and tea for those who had have a personal cancer journey at Bija Yoga Berlin!
As many of you know, I was diagnosed with cancer in December of 2013 and dealt with treatments that brought her into remission in 2014 and 2015. During my treatment and afterwards, I realized that for me it was important to spend time with people who had gone through such an experience. It helped me feel a bit of freedom, release, and connection that I was grateful for and that has helped nourish me greatly.
I decided that perhaps I should step up to the plate and create an space for people who have faced cancer and might be currently facing cancer to come together and practice yoga as a community. Therefore, the monthly yoga and tea is an offering of a 1.5 hour gentle yoga class led by MB, followed by an hour for tea and chatting.
The yoga class will be gentle in nature, with my usual offering of modifications and alternative forms that allow each person to decide if they would like to keep their practice cool and grounding, or if they would like to heat it up a bit.
Upcoming Dates (every third Saturday):
MB offers this class from her heart and therefore had made it a donation-based class, with the hope that this will mean that those who are able to give, do so knowing that they are helping to pay for the rent of the space, snacks, and MB’s teaching time, and that those who might be not have much money to spend on yoga are able to participate.
You can read more about this monthly offering on MB’s website: Monthly Yoga and Tea (cancer-related).
Please get in touch if you are interested, and please pass this information along to anyone you know who has faced cancer and might be interested in joining.
I am also hoping to conduct a few weekend classes that are open to all students in the near future, and will keep you posted as things develop.
Wishing everyone a great day!
Mary Beth (MB)
