This weekend, it's all about putting the "unity" in "community". December 6-8 marks the first ever Yoga Zen Fest in Ottawa, a fundraising campaign in support of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. So unfurl your yoga mat, join one of the classes at a participating yoga studio and know that through your participation, you are putting good karma out to those whose lives are affected by cancer and giving them an opportunity to become whole again through the programs offered at the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation’s Maplesoft Center.
Cancer Coaching was developed by the Cancer Foundation in response to the growing need for cancer survivorship care in our community.
Cancer Coaching is available to all cancer survivors – cancer patients, their family and caregivers – without the need for a medical referral. This innovative new health service addresses local cancer patients’ complex needs and focuses on your physical, emotional and spiritual needs – to help meet the challenges of cancer and improve your overall quality of life.
In addition, the Cancer Foundation's Wellness Programs and Healing Therapies focus on disease management, fitness & exercise, nutrition & cooking and mind-body-spirit balance.
100% of the funds raised in the Yoga Zen Fest will support Cancer Coaching and Healing Therapies offered at the Maplesoft Centre.
