The Impact of Donna Terrell’s Yoga Warriors
As seen on Fox16. Watch the full story HERE.
Donna Terrell’s Yoga Warriors provides yoga classes for cancer survivors and caregivers at CARTI. Yoga instructor Wesley Pilcher of Arkansas Yoga Collective has been leading the classes for almost two years. He says feedback from patients ranges from better health to happiness.
“Some of them come straight from treatment so they are a little bit stressed out. So once I get them calm and do a little mediation they seem to really relax and they always say how much it’s changed in the way they can’t even understand. They love to come back and really enjoy it,” says Wesley.
Yoga Warriors covers the cost of yoga for patients four times a month at CARTI. The organization is able to provide this program because of generous people who attend the annual Yoga Warriors event at the DoubleTree. This year’s event will take place Saturday, April 20 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
