Our Training: The Yoga Bridge™ model is a unique combination of yoga and massage that has been part of a successful program in the DFW area since January of 2012. We are on the cusp of a growing tread in the medical community that utilizes yoga as a means of supporting those in the healing process of a cancer diagnosis.

Training is recommended for 200-hour registered yoga teachers and healthcare professionals, but applicants with a genuine interest in how yoga can support cancer patients and survivors are welcome.
