FREE YOGA FOR CANCER PATIENTS WILL CONTINUE TO BE HELD ON WEDNESDAY MORNINGS AT 9AM.  Please rsvp each week by Tuesday afternoon at 4pm to info@jaxinthepink.net or call 904-372-0029 as a courtesy to our instructors.  Our permanent instructor is the wonderful Linda Altman.  We are thrilled to have her back with us again.  

We will begin offering a Saturday morning class at 9am on the first Saturday of each month beginning May 7th!  Many people have requested a Saturday class, so we are willing to provide one!!  Be sure to rsvp for this one, as well.  Linda Altman will be leading this class.


In the Pink sponsors DRAGON BOAT PADDLING for breast cancer survivors and their families, as well as non-survivors.  If you are interested in learning to paddle, join the Jacksonville Dragon Boat Club!  We have teams for everyone, regardless of age or fitness level.  We also have one team, the Mammoglams, that is made up of all breast cancer survivors!  This is a great way to have fun and exercise with other women who understand your journey. For all people interested in any team, call Marty Millard at 904-536-3475 or for more information, visit www.jacksonvilledragonboatclub.com.  Stop by the new Jacksonville Dragon Boat Training Center at Beach Marine to see the new facility.  It is in the building just east of the old Nipper’s Grille.  Get bit by the dragon!  You can show up any Saturday morning at 10:45am for new paddler instruction.  Bring the entire family.  We start paddlers at 10 years old!  It is definitely a family sport.


April 19th:  Join us at BJ’s Brewhouse at 15022 Max Leggett Pkwy. between 5-10pm and give back to In the Pink!  This is a fundraiser for our Mammoglams dragon boat team.  A portion of your bill will be donated to the team!
