Join Leah Adams as she guides you through mindful Yoga practice intended for post-treatment support.
Yoga increases your sense of calm, well-being, and decreases stress along with physical and psychological pain. MRI results show that yoga elevates your levels of GABA, an amino acid found in the central nervous system which helps you feel calm and alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety.
The practice of linking the breath with movement stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system which promotes the ability to recover, digest, play, and create. These breath-centered yin and yin-yang classes focus on functional alignment and presence. They help you reset, so you feel both relaxed and energized. These sessions, grounded on a safe and welcoming platform, also provide practical tools you can take away to enrich the rest of your day and life.
Leah also works one-on-one with patients in active treatment when appropriate. Please contact her to set up a complimentary pre-practice consultation
Leah Adams is a yoga teacher trainer, meditation facilitator, and speaker grounded in ancient lineage and personal practice, integrating a unique blend of Yin yoga, traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic remedies, neuroscience and mindfulness. An early calling to holistic wellness rituals and the beauty of the natural world drew her path first to Ayurveda, then to an extensive array of Eastern practices and modalities. Leah teaches weekly classes to medical professionals at Washington State’s top cancer care hospital and helps cancer patients develop their practices.
In 5000 + hours of ongoing study guided by some of the world’s most profound teachers, Leah’s lifelong curiosity and extensiveness of training reflect the depth of her devotion to practice. Her true intention is to share many possible paths to well-being and inner peace, through ancient wisdom, practical knowledge, and a graceful balance between body and heart-mind.
I teach yoga to support people going
through various stages of their cancer journey
(stem cell transplants, mastectomy, hysterectomy, chemo,
radiation or remission).
In my experience,
their practices deepen their ability
to access their own inner reservoirs of strength and calm.
Yin Yoga and mindfulness provide powerful tools
to stay connected to our natural ability
to feel joyful and empowered even amidst the storms.
My role is to share tools they can use
to tap into their own inner pharmacy
to find relaxation, calm and peace.
While they have an amazing and talented team
of doctors, naturopaths, acupuncturists,
nurses and nutritionists backing them up,
this practice is an empowering way for cancer patients
to continue to harness their own internal strength
and participate in the process in a new way.
