Live event with Cardiac Yoga Instructor and fellow Survivor, Karin Bertozzi.
Live Q&A event with a member of our community and Hope Ambassador, Karin Bertozzi. Karin was most recently featured in our Survivor Series. Almost 4 years ago Karin Bertozzi fainted in a market in Bethesda, Maryland. Four days later she woke up in the ICU and learned she had suffered an ascending aortic aneurysm and dissection. Her surprise event revealed a connective tissue disorder that has been in her family for generations. She is very active as a volunteer with Mended Hearts - a support group offering hope to heart patients and their families. Her message is one of giving back and knowing your family history. Karin has recently become a 500ERTY and Cardiac Yoga Certified Instructor. She will be showing us how we all can do simple and easy Chair Yoga as a way of decreasing stress and improving our emotional and mental well-being. You will also have time to ask any questions about her, her experience and Chair Yoga.
