We recently invited Leeds TV to join our Yoga for Living with Cancer class, which runs every Tuesday at 1:20pm-2:30pm with Senior Yoga Teacher Lara Heppell.


Yoga For Living with Cancer

This incredible class has been part of Yoga Kula for 6 of our 7 years of our journey, beginning in October 2013.

Our aim is to create a sacred place for people living with Cancer. A space where people are welcome to attend no matter how they feel, be quiet and be concerned only with their own well-being and healing. Our classes contain a lot of love and support and everyone is welcome.

All we aim, is for you to leave the studio feeling better than when you came in. Yoga is not a cure for Cancer but it can certainly help the body to work as efficiently as possible by strengthening the immune system and encouraging inner healing systems.

What does the class involve?

We have people with all types and stages of cancer coming to class. People in supportive roles are of course more than welcome to join us as well. Every class has physical postures, breathing exercises, meditation, restorative poses and a guided relaxation.

This weekly class offers a calm sanctuary where you can find some comfort and ease in your body and quietness for your mind. It is suitable for everyone who has an experience of cancer.  Whether that be recently diagnosed, in treatment, in remission, in the palliative stages or even those in a supportive role. You don’t need to have any yoga experience, or be coordinated, flexible or even feel good to come along. You can even do the class sitting on a chair. Just come along and join our wonderful and supportive community.

Every class looks very different. Some days one person will be on the floor in a restorative pose, one will sit on a chair doing side stretches and two others will sit on the floor doing the same side stretches. Any physical limitations are catered for and we adapt each session to meet you where you are.

Learn more below as we join Karen, Stephen and Joseph to hear more about their Yoga for Living with Cancer journey, and from Lara Heppell who teaches this class every Tuesday at 1:20pm.
