About Beth Lawrence

Beth discovered yoga in early 2002 as a mother of six month old twins. She was looking to get back into shape after their birth. In yoga, she found far more than she anticipated- an age old practice designed to help people relieve stress- both mental and physical. After a few years of regular practice, she knew she wanted to share her positive experiences with others. She has been leading yoga classes in the DC area since 2007 after completing her 200 hour yoga teacher training at Nth Degree Yoga with Martha Rosen. In 2011, she went back to earn her RYT500. Her personal practice is inspired by Integral Yoga and Sivananda Yoga, both of which incorporate body and mind into the practice.

Yoga & Stress Reduction

Please join us for a class which draws largely from Sivananda Yoga and Integral Yoga.  The two schools take an integrated approach to yoga, incorporating both the mind and body into their practices.  Mentally, we focus on relaxation and work toward stilling the mind to reveal our true natures of peace and contentment.  Physically, we follow a set sequence of poses to first warm up the body, and then to encourage strength and flexibility.  Like many other schools of yoga, the series is the same each time to encourage a meditative quality to the physical as well as the mental component of the class. All levels welcome.

Weekly class on Mondays from 10:30-11:45am. Sessions in June:

Hosted by Critical Mass

The National Cancer Institute estimates that each year nearly one-quarter of all new cancer diagnosis will impact men and women of reproductive age.  Cancer patients and their providers have a very short window to decide to preserve fertility whether prior to treatment or in between surgery and chemotherapy. In addition, adolescents and young adults face unique barriers.  Many providers do not discuss how cancer treatment will impact their fertility and if they do, they do not always meet strict insurance coverage requirements for coverage. Join Critical Mass for a town hall discussion about how a cancer diagnosis impacts family building options.

Our programs are open to the community, and tailored to meet the needs of people affected by cancer. Classes and workshops are free or low cost on a pay-as-you-can basis, ensuring that our programs are accessible to everyone.


About Critical Mass

Critical Mass was formed in 2006 as the LIVESTRONG Young Adult Alliance (Alliance), a program of the LIVESTRONG Foundation, built as a volunteer-driven coalition of organizations that included universities and academic medical centers, cancer centers, community hospitals, professional societies, nonprofit/advocacy groups, and liaison members from government agencies such as NCI and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The LIVESTRONG Foundation created the Alliance originally as an implementation body to address the recommendations in the groundbreaking report from the NCI’s Adolescent/Young Adult Oncology Progress Review Group in 2006, which was the first major recognition in the United States of young adults between 15-39 years old as a distinct group with unique needs, issues and even biology.
