Yoga for Women's Cancer Research

By Lauren Broomhall

We're hosting a Yoga for Cancer Fundraiser event to help all Victorian women affected by cancer

Hosted by leaf+bird wellbeing and Thompsons Road Physiotherapy.

Every year, 15,700 Victorian women are diagnosed cancer, and 6,000 of those will be breast or gynaecological cancers.

Thanks in part to generous Victorians, the good news is that the rate of women dying from cancer is declining. Throughout the last decade, the rate has been consistently decreasing by 1.5% per year. This is thanks to earlier detection of cancers through screening, reductions in tobacco use, and improvements in treatment.

At leaf+bird wellbeing and Thompsons Road Physiotherapy we are passionate about saving even more lives, so we're helping Cancer Council Victoria by hosting a Yoga Fundraising Morning. It’s the perfect opportunity to spend time with loved ones doing something healthy, all while raising vital funds. 

When: Saturday 30th November, 2019. 10am - 12pm

(Gentle Hatha Yoga 10-11am, morning tea 11-11.45am, guided meditation 11.45am - 12pm)

Where: leaf+bird wellbeing, 11 Gertrude St, Lower Templestowe.

Who: anyone who wants to support us is welcome (not just ladies!). The yoga class will be gentle and suitable to beginners/novices.

Registrations: you MUST register to attend the yoga session from 10am - 11am as places are limited. Registration is FREE and online at
