“The Yoga for Cancer Workshop with Lisa Blanch, was a very insightful and inspirational 2 days. I came in to learn more both as a Yoga teacher and as a cancer patient myself so that I may have a better understanding and have the right skills to be of service. I am so inspired by the wealth of knowledge and generosity of Lisa and the shared life experiences of my fellow Yoga Teachers in the group. I am so inspired and I hope I can practice these additional skills soon and serve our community.”– Annah Torres Dellosa
