VESTAL (WBNG) - A local nurse is helping heal the mind, body and spirit, offering class to benefit cancer patients, survivors and their loved ones.
Grace Solano, PhD., is working with Organic Yoga studio to offer a one-hour session that helps calm participants and put their mind's at ease during what can be a very stressful time in their lives.
Solano started the class this past summer in honor of her father's fight against cancer.
"It is a blessing and like I said: this is my gift to my community in honor of my father," Solano said. "I know how yoga has helped me and my practice of yoga has helped, and I really wanted to do this for people going through a challenging time."
The yoga sessions are free to sign up for and attend.
Solano told 12 News the yoga is very basic, and accommodations can be made for people with disabilities wishing to participate.
The class goes from noon until 1 p.m. every Saturday at the Organic Yoga studio.
Solano will also be starting a new class on Mar. 15 at the Universal Prana studio in Greene.
The time for that class will be Sundays from noon until 1 p.m.
