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. "Experience the benefits of yoga: a stronger healthier body and a calmer, more focused mind," a press release notes. There's an emphasis on "movement with breath awareness to achieve a tranquil feeling."

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.
