The Martinsville-Henry County Historical Society and Just Breathe Yoga & Bodywork will sponsor “Breast Cancer Awareness Yoga on the Plaza” on Thursday, October 20 at 6 p.m., on the Historic Henry County Courthouse Plaza.
Led by Sheila Hubbard, founder of Just Breathe Yoga & Bodywork, the event will acknowledge October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Local History Month. Yogis of all levels are welcome to this free event. Please wear pink and bring your own yoga mat and equipment.
John Phillips, president of the society said, “In 2022, an estimated 287,500 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in the U.S. as well as 51,400 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer. Although rare, men get breast cancer too. In 2022, an estimated 2,710 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S. and approximately 530 men will die from breast cancer. Wear pink and join us as we bring awareness to breast cancer and local history.”
Hubbard has been striving to promote health and healing in the area through many modalities since 1998. She is a Board-Certified Massage Therapist and holds a Virginia State License in Massage Therapy. She is also a Clinical Aromatherapist, a Karuna Reiki Master, a Bodytalk Practitioner, a Reflexologist, and a Registered Yoga Teacher.
“I believe there is a yoga class for everyone and am devoted to serving the community through healing,” she said.
