Coaching Workshops


Coaching Workshops are led by one of our Wellness Coaches. The sessions are designed to help manage feelings of stress and common treatment side effects as well as provide tips and tools that you can use to help manage changes related to your own cancer diagnosis or a cancer diagnosis of a loved one. The Workshops help you find balance between your mind, body, and spirit.

The Coaching Workshops require a payment for participation. All funds support our Private Cancer Coaching sessions. By taking part in a Coaching Workshop, you are helping to provide Cancer Coaching to someone in our community.

Our Group Cancer Coaching programs change throughout the year. A list of the programs available to you can be found below. Please note that all of these programs are demand-based and will run dependent on the registration of our clients.


Coaching Workshops


Yoga discovery is an 8 week program where you will learn how to use simple yoga postures, breathing, and relaxation techniques to reduce stress, control emotions, and help strengthen and promote healing and wellness.
The program focuses on 3 areas: developing strength and flexibility, developing new and better breathing habits, and reducing stress and anxiety by tapping into the body’s natural relaxation response.
Unlike other instructor lead yoga classes, this program is designed to help you develop your own yoga practice that you can do at home.

The next planned offering is to be determined. Express your interest!

meditation for stress reduction 

This group coaching workshop is for clients of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation who have met with their Cancer Coach and feel this opportunity will provide the support they are looking for at this time.
Recent studies at Harvard University suggest that meditation physically changes your brain’s gray matter for the better. A regular meditation practice may include improvements in memory, sense of self, empathy and stress.

This 4 week meditation workshop will assist you with: strengthening and expanding your personal meditation practice, learning different approaches to meditation, how to transform your response to stress, and ways to access your inner resources for relaxation and rejuvenation. Each 60-minute session includes a discussion on the benefits of that type of meditation, a brief and gentle physical yoga practice, an opportunity to practice the meditation, as well as group discussion/question time. Facilitated by the Director of PranaShanti Yoga Centre Devinder Kaur.

The Fall offering was cancelled due to low enrollment. The next planned offering will be in the new year. Stay tuned!

Exercising has many benefits.  People often don’t realize those very same benefits transfer over when you exercise during and directly after your treatments for Cancer.  This workshop will teach you all the benefits of exercise, how to safely and effectively progress your exercise routines, set goals, and stay motivated to exercise for the rest of your life. After completing this workshop you will have some tangible goals set, motivation strategies in place, and a variety of different exercise programs you can do on your own, or as part of a group. We’re not ‘fitness stiffs’ either, so you can expect to have fun while attending this small group course.

Please come dressed comfortably, ready for learning, and ready to exercise. We suggest bringing a towel and re-fillable water bottle.

The Fall offering has been differed. The new start will be Wednesdays, November 7th to December 12th 2018 from 1-2:15pm.
