Over half of Americans report that they or someone in their immediate family has been diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives. Create Calm strives to support families through everything – ups and downs. We are honored to be partnering with INOVA’s Life with Cancer Pediatric Program.
Create Calm has officially launched a private on-demand video page featuring tools for stress management, led in Spanish and English, to support children, teens, family members, and caregivers affected by cancer.
Together, Create Calm and INOVA’s Life with Cancer program are removing barriers to care by creating access to age-appropriate, yoga-based movement classes, breath work, and guided meditations. This on-demand video programming is provided free of charge to children, teens, and families treated by INOVA’s Pediatric Cancer program. Create Calm’s videos are here for support in the hospital, at home, and on-the-go.

“Children teach us so much through their presence, playfulness and curiosity. I love being able to share the tools of yoga with them through mindful breathing, fun poses, music and positive affirmations. My hope is that those tools create a foundation that will continue to impact their daily lives in a positive way.” – Lindsey Simpson
