Cancer Survivor Teaching Yoga Survivorship Class

A woman who survived a bout of breast cancer is now teaching a class on the exercise that helped her on her road to recovery.

In 2002, Mary Eliza Humphries was diagnosed with breast cancer and a nurse suggested she take an exercise program. She was eventually led to yoga. She tells CHSJ News it made her feel like a whole person for the first time since she started her treatment and she wanted to share that feeling with others.

She's now the instructor for the Survivorship Yoga program for survivors of cancer and those undergoing treatment, and says she hopes to expand the program to Saint John in January. 

To register for the program, call 847-2210, e-mail, or simply drop by a Sunday class at 6pm at the qplex in Quispamsis. The first class is this evening.
