This year, we are raising funds to help keep our classes and group sizes small. This helps to maintain a sense of community and allows participants to get the individualized care they need.

We do this by adding additional sections of popular offerings like Gentle Yoga, Pink Ribbon Pilates, the Breast Cancer Support Group, and others. These programs have become so popular that additional sections are required in order to keep class sizes smaller and more intimate.

Will you help us raise $15,000 to support people affected by cancer in our community?
