Patients, survivors, and the breast cancer community will be given access to a restorative fitness program that will support their breast cancer journey at absolutely no cost.
YogaWorks Pink program members will also have full access to YogaWorks’ regular collection of more than 1,300 on-demand classes and 25+ live classes each day. Research shows that yoga is an effective therapy to help patients and survivors manage the side effects of breast cancer and breast cancer treatment to improve their overall quality of life.
“YogaWorks is the most experienced and trusted name in yoga, and we are thrilled to have their experts develop this valuable program for the breast cancer community,” said Sarah Rosales, Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at Susan G.

This program will provide an incredible resource to the breast cancer community that will assist patients in treatment as well as those in recovery.”
“Those impacted by breast cancer are an important part of our community, and YogaWorks has always tailored its programming to ensure flexibility with different needs in mind,” said Maya Magennis, President of YogaWorks. “A partnership with Susan G. Komen, the nationally recognized leader in this space, will further amplify our company’s ability to help millions of people on their journey toward recovery, strength, and restoration.”
Breast cancer survivor, Emmy-winning TV host, bestselling author and wellness enthusiast, Samantha Harris is lending her voice as the YogaWorks Pink program’s ambassador, a first-of-its-kind partnership between Susan G. Komen® and YogaWorks to provide online classes tailored to the breast cancer community.
“It’s my honor to partner with Susan G. Komen and YogaWorks to bring a program designed specifically for breast cancer patients and survivors to fruition,” said Samantha Harris. “As a survivor, thriver, and yoga-lover myself, I’ve lived the benefits that yoga has brought in calming my mind, helping reduce symptoms and side effects as well as allowing me to move around more easily after surgery and reclaim my body.”
YogaWorks Pink will offer breast cancer community members unrestricted access to the platform at no cost, for three months.
