Yoga for Cancer
Taos Yoga Therapy is honored to provide yoga classes and private wellness sessions for individuals dealing with cancer through Cancer Support Services. Cancer patients who practice yoga as a therapeutic tool during treatment can dramatically improve physical symptoms such as pain and fatigue. Many patients report that mindfulness along with a gentle set of exercises and breath awareness bring relief whether dealing with ongoing nausea, scar-tissue, and weakness from chemotherapy and radiation. For more information about these services, contact Taos Yoga Therapy or Cancer Support Services.

Cancer Support Services
Holy Cross Hospital’s Cancer Support Services Program provides non-medical supports to people in Taos and Colfax Counties who are struggling with cancer. These services support emotional well-being and ensure that basic needs are met in order to ease the strain, promote healing and improve quality of life for patients and their family members during a most difficult time. Lets not mention the amount of money. The downloadable application for services is available online here.

Taos Yoga Therapy is pleased to announce a new Wellness Service—Foot Reflexology—that is both an ancient practice and a unique alternative healing modality. It is rare that we give gratitude to, let alone care for our feet. Foot reflexology stimulates the internal organs, nerve function, glands, body systems, and spine—balancing the entire body. It also helps to boost the immune system, eliminate toxins, prevent migraines, and speed recovery after injury or surgery. Because the feet are a map of the entire body—foot reflexology can be like receiving a full body massage.  Susan Lewis, who teaches the Yin Yoga: Sweet Surrender class is also a Certified Reflexologist with fifteen years of experience. She is available for 1-hour Reflexology Wellness Sessions. Sessions are 60 minutes and cost $65. To book your appointment, please email Susan at: susanplewis@gmail.com
