Our Mission…  Living Tree Yoga’s mission is to raise awareness of the healing benefits that practicing yoga brings to cancer patients, while going through treatment.

Our Goal… To create a nationwide movement that allows a “support friend” to attend free yoga classes with a loved one who is going through cancer treatment, at a location close to home.

Our Purpose… is to offer strength, hope, compassion and love to those enduring the season of cancer in their lives.  Our hope is that they are able to take a good day and make it a great day by sharing in the healing benefits of yoga with a loved one.
