Cancer Center Programs


We’re committed to fulfilling the unique needs of each patient and their family, offering support and guidance through every stage of their journey, which is why we provide the following programs to our community at no cost.

Ananda Yoga Therapy

Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the philosophy and practice of Yoga. Above all, it seeks to raise your level of consciousness by reinforcing the natural effects of the yoga postures. With this, it is also designed to harmonize your body, mind, and soul.
