History of CPF Classes

Mayo History 2010-2015




Cindy Van Horn and the Pink Sisters add CPF Yoga to their support group program.  CPF volunteer Lisa commits to teach each week, Tuesday evenings.  Mayo doctors train first class of yoga teachers to become certified by CPF.




Lisa is teaching at Mayo weekly.  Mayo doctors train third class of yoga teachers to become certified by CPF on November 5, 2011.




A second CPF yoga class is requested by Mayo to be held at the Gabriel House.  Residents, caregivers and patients are invited to attend a class held during the daytime.  A team of CPF volunteer teachers commit to this weekly class including: Irene, Linda, Janet, Candice, Susan.  Volunteers taught this for 3 years.  Lisa transitioned evening class to Linda, and then to Laura, who taught until 2015.




Two Mayo classes taught by CPF volunteers weekly at Stabile and Gabriel House.  All subs and teacher transitions handled by CPF ED.




Gabriel House invites other, non-CPF trained yoga teachers to teach.  Existing CPF class size is slightly reduced. CPF teachers continue weekly at both locations.




Two CPF volunteers at Gabriel House complete their commitment to the foundation and step down.  They are not replaced as the non-CPF volunteers are still holding classes and CPF ED guides one of the transplant yoga students into YTT200, advises to become a yoga teacher and recommends training programs. Gabriel House offers to pay for training, ED enrolls in YTT and begins teaching.  She is not certified by CPF but was originally our student.  Evening class is transitioned from Laura to Ana. Pat joins this evening teaching team in October.  Mayo doctors train class of yoga teachers to become certified by CPF May 9, 2015.  CPF turns focus to organization of a larger, more open Restorative Yoga class in Cannaday 1050 with Mayo staff Renee. An additional twenty sets of props are ordered, storage is obtained by Mayo.  Class begins October 2015. CPF ED kicks off class. CPF Teachers are being recruited to continue this class weekly.




Mayo requests Chair Yoga to begin in Canady 1050 January 7, 2015 and run every week.  Beth begins looking for teaching team.
