About us

Yoga for Cancer is a charity organisation that hosts yoga classes and events, and supports cancer organisations worldwide. It is based on a unique double-donation principle:

  1. Our yoga classes are donated to us by experienced yoga teachers all over the world.

  2. You can thank us for a yoga class by making a donation to Yoga for Cancer.

Make Donation

Yoga for Cancer was founded in Berlin, Germany, in spring 2020 by Stephanie,  journalist ✍️, yoga teacher 🧘 and breast cancer survivor, and her partner Eric, engineer and bicycle 🚲 enthusiast.

Having lived through cancer together (and survived!), they now want to give something back to society: the chance to live a healthy life and the hope for healing.
