Project

Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation

Offer wellness workshops through various organizations working with people affected by cancer.

Description

The Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation has partnered with seven different organizations to make yoga workshops available to anyone affected by breast cancer. Several studies have shown that practising yoga during treatment can be beneficial in many ways: it can reduce inflammation, decrease fatigue and symptoms of anxiety or depression, as well as improve the quality of sleep. Thanks to the Foundation’s financial contributions, these workshops are offered free of charge in four regions of the province: Montréal, Montréal South Shore, Laval, the Laurentians and Québec.
