yogaThis past weekend, Saturday June 11th, Susan G. Komen San Diego welcomed individuals to participate in a wellness event to help Komen supporters unwind and relax through a guided meditation practice, yoga session, chair massages, and a chance to explore healthy foods. As an organization, we strongly believe that maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important whether you or a loved one is facing breast cancer and we believe that these practices can help one lead a healthier life.

Yoga is aimed at the achievement of self-realization or enlightenment. Today yoga is also used along with other treatments for a variety of medical conditions and to help maintain good health. Like other forms of exercise and meditation yoga has been shown to have several beneficial effects both physically and mentally. Which helps individuals live a more healthy and balanced life.

A big thanks to our event instructors, Jeffrey Zlotnik, Jenny Driessen, Roxanne Chrestman, and Whitney Riggs who provided this free event!
