TWO new courses are helping locals living with cancer to find their Zen and manage their stress.

The Cancer Council’s Life Now Program is giving locals access to a free eight-week mindfulness workshop in East Fremantle and a six-week yoga workshop in South Fremantle to help reduce anxiety, manage stress and improve their quality of life.

Cancer Council WA Life Now project officer Seng Sengsourinho said the program was specifically designed to help those living with cancer and their carers.

“Our introductory classes provide an opportunity for cancer patients and their carers to try different programs that could be beneficial for their health, both mentally and physically,” she said.

“If you have been diagnosed with cancer or are caring for someone with cancer and have always wanted to try yoga or mindfulness, then give it a go.”

The classes are taught by experienced facilitators.
