JEFFERSON VALLEY, N.Y. -- Support Connection, in Yorktown Heights, has announced a free weekly program, "Yoga: A Path Toward Wellness," for people living with breast, ovarian and gynecological cancers.
The sessions will be on Saturdays from noon to 1:30 p.m. at Club Fit, in Jefferson Valley. The March dates are the 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th.

These classes are appropriate for both beginners and advance students. Folks are invited to come weekly or for a single session. But the program advises people to seek their doctor's approval before participating in any wellness program.
