    Weekly yoga and relaxation sessions for women with a diagnosis of ovarian cancer

    Every Wednesday, 2pm–3pm

    Yoga is a natural way to boost wellbeing as it helps you to relax, cope with stress and anxiety, and get some gentle exercise. Staying active can help with side effects such as fatigue and improve your emotional wellbeing, an important part of life for everyone affected by ovarian cancer.

    Our instructor has experience in leading sessions for people with cancer, so will guide you safely. You can do it seated or standing – whatever feels right for you.

    This session is free but you'll need to register in advance.

    Monday 27 September, 2pm–3pm
