The one hundred honoree: Luba Zagachin

Mass General Giving

“I am grateful for the opportunity to study yoga as part of my treatment at the Mass General Cancer Center. I have practiced yoga for more than 25 years; but in the classes led by Luba Zagachin, I learn how to adapt yoga poses to my needs as I go through cancer treatment. She cheerfully encourages her students to go at their own pace and reminds us of the importance of listening to our bodies. She is a teacher’s teacher and treats each student with great empathy and understanding. While training us to be gentle with ourselves in all activities, not only yoga, Luba has also taught us to be positive and respect the learning process within each of us as we recover from illness.”
