It all started with a Rocky-like idea. In 2000, Living Beyond Breast Cancer CEO Jean Sachs met yoga instructor Jennifer Schelter and one of her students, who had a terrific idea: why not do a special yoga class in support of women with breast cancer on Philadelphia’s iconic Art Museum steps?
This would be an opportunity to create something truly unique and to bring together an entire community in support of people impacted by breast cancer, while engaging participants in a fun, healthy group activity.
Since then, yoga has become an integral part of LBBC, since it offers physical and mental health benefits, whether a participant is impacted by breast cancer or not. Unlike a walk or run, everyone is in the same place at the same time, experiencing a special unity. Yoga is a way for people to come together and experience a community of support. And everyone can participate, regardless of their level of physical fitness or experience with yoga.
