A Mind, Body, Spirit Cancer Survivorship Program Open to All

The YMCA Above+Beyond Cancer Optimal Living for Cancer Survivors program is open weekly to cancer survivors, caregivers and anyone who has been touched by cancer.

Patients and physicians know that strengthening one’s mind, body and spirit plays an essential role in cancer treatment. Our survivorship program offers a wide variety of programs led by certified instructors, ranging from spin to yoga and our signature mindful mediation.
