In light of recent events, The Foundation for Living Beauty has decided to move our current programs online whenever possible. The health of our Living Beauties is number one and our mission to educate, uplift and empower women with cancer continues on as we make this transition. Please check your emails for updates on upcoming workshops and seminars. If you are new to the organization, please feel free to sign up to become a Living Beauty in order to stay up to date with upcoming events, resources and other news and information.

Yoga as Medicine Series with Tari Prinster 3 Thursdays in March: March 4, 11, 18 11:00am – 12:30pm PST Via Zoom
In keeping with the March theme “Plants as Medicine”, these yoga4cancer workshops are titled “Yoga as Medicine”. During our 90 minute sessions we will explore my claim that “Yoga is as scientific as it is spiritual”. Mind you, these will not be science classes. No textbooks, reading assignments or tests. The science part will be short discussion and my tiny demonstrations. Mostly we will find and grow our yoga roots, may our bodies mimic trees and blossom our hearts in a good yoga practice.
Our goals will be will to:
explore the science of yoga
utilize the breath to stabilize all body systems
increase your metabolism
rediscover balance, harmony and well-being.
Join me for Yoga as Medicine Workshop Series. You will learn specific yoga sequences that keep your day to day physical and emotional well-being in perfect balance and harmony. Yoga is a simple, non-expensive and fun. Together we will feel content and beautiful, chat, and share a giggle.
Classes are suitable to all levels and physical needs. Beginners welcome.
y4c is an evidence-informed oncology yoga method tailored to address the specific physical and emotional needs left by cancer treatments. Tari Prinster created y4c after her diagnosis in 2000, because she was curious why yoga was so healing for her, but not recommended by her doctors. She has been a Living Beauty since 2009 when she led the first Serenity Yoga Retreat in Monterrey. She has been teaching cancer patients and survivors; lecturing and training yoga teachers all over the world. She appeared on Good Morning America with Robin Roberts demonstrating how yoga creates balance and harmony; was featured in the film ‘YogaWoman’; and wrote the book, “Yoga for Cancer” in 2014.

“Cancer may steal your breath, but yoga gives it back.”– tari
The bonds you create at retreats and events can continue all year long! Or if you are new to our sisterhood, this is a great opportunity for you to meet other women who “get you” like no one else can. We hope you can join us at one of our weekly casual gatherings.
Every Friday from 4 pm-5 pm we will be hosting an open chatroom on zoom for Living Beauties to chat and connect. Please feel free to “drop-in” at any time during the hour. There is no set program, just a chance to hear from and talk to your fellow Living Beauties and create community online!
