Yoga for Cancer

Mid Coast Hospital and Maine Pines Racquet & Fitness are again partnering to offer a yoga program designed to limit stress, reduce fatigue, and promote healing for cancer patients. “Yoga for Cancer” takes place weekly, beginning September 21 . It is free and open to cancer patients before, after, or during treatment.

Research suggests that yoga can improve the symptoms of cancer and cancer treatment, while helping patients cope. Benefits include a decrease in fatigue, pain, and anxiety as well as an increase in appetite, better quality sleep, and improved bone density. The Yoga for Cancer program will help cancer patients develop a better sense of well being, stimulate the immune system, and increase flexibility and strength.

Register at Maine Pines, 120 Harpswell Road in Brunswick, or by calling (207) 729-8433.

Starting Monday, September 11, New Ventures Maine will offer My Money Works, a free five-week class to help you gain the skills and confidence to stretch your money, pay your bills, reduce your debt, find money for savings, plan for retirement, and set personal financial goals.

newventuresmaine.org/schedules/my-money-works-70

The class will be held on Mondays from 5:30-8:00 PM, meeting for four sessions from September 11 through October 2. Classes take place in Orion Hall at the University College of Bath/Brunswick at 12 Sewall Street in Brunswick Landing.

Pre-registration is required, and there is no fee for the training. For more information or to register, contact Erica Quin-Easter at New Ventures Maine at 386-1664, email erica.quineaster@maine.edu, or register online at newventuresmaine.org/schedules/my-money-works-70.

My Money Works is open to individuals, couples, and people of all ages and incomes. Anyone who is interested in gaining greater control over your money is welcome.

Erica Quin-Easter, trainer for the class, says, “This course helps you take control over your money, instead of your money controlling you. Whether you are trying to make ends meet now or planning for your long-term goals, you will leave this class with a plan to achieve greater financial stability.”

Participants in recent classes say about My Money Works:

  • I have a much better grasp on the things that are important to think about and keep track of and plan for my money. After the last class, I opened three new savings accounts so that I can reach my goals of being more stable throughout the year (short term savings), have an emergency fund (long term), and save for paying my school bills.
  • I feel like I have the tools I need now to be more financially responsible. I plan on refreshing my budget and sticking to it. I also plan on starting an emergency fund.
  • Thanks to this training, I will be able to repair my credit and move forward to improving my financial health.
  • Everything taught in this class was all new to me, and yet it’s all important information that I need to know in life and will be able to pass onto my spouse and kids.
  • The “real life” way everything was presented in the class made a difference. It made it easy to relate.
  • The group was supportive and respectful, easy to talk to. It was a great class with a wealth of information.
  • Taking the class has made me more positive about my financial future.

Successful completion of the My Money Works class also meets one of the requirements for the Rainy Day Savings program, a matched-savings program that enables eligible individuals and families to double their savings with a matching grant of up to $300 for emergency expenses, as well as requirements for the Family Development Account program, a matched-savings program to save for business development, your college education, first-time home ownership, car purchase or repair, home repair, or emergency savings.New Ventures Maine logo
