Yoga Bear is a volunteer based non-profit 501(c)(3) that incorporated in December 2006 in San Francisco and now operates in 22 states throughout the US. Yoga Bear supports the belief that cancer patients and survivors can benefit from yoga as a complementary treatment in cancer recovery. Dedicated to providing patients and survivors with more opportunities for wellness and healing, Yoga Bear matches them with local yoga classes free of charge.
Since its founding, Yoga Bear has expanded to connect hundreds cancer patients and survivors with more than 140 partner yoga studios across the nation. Yoga Bear also provides on-site yoga classes in hospitals (Kaiser, Maimonides, and Mt. Sinai), cancer centers, and support groups such as The American Cancer Society and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Yoga Bear is creating a supportive community for its constituents by being devoted to issues concerning quality of life for cancer survivors. Providing yoga instruction to those with a limited income due to treatment costs is Yoga Bear's top priority.
