Brenda Ohta, PhD, LCSW, is a YogaWorks 200-hr certified yoga instructor.  Attending the Cancer Support Community as a participant, she found tremendous support and fellowship among fellow cancer warriors.  In gratitude, she now gives back to the Community through the service of yoga instruction.  Previously Brenda worked as a hospital administrator, academic researcher, and bioethics facilitator. The cancer experience changed her approach to life; yoga, meditation, walks on the beach, and the Cancer Support Community, have supported her healing journey and deepened her appreciation of family, friends, nature, and community.  For Brenda, Yoga supports the pathway to healing by aligning body, breath and mind.  It opens the way to finding inner strength, peace, and healing and toward greater compassion for oneself and those around us.
