Yoga & Cancer

whether during treatments as self-care 

or as after-care

 

in addition to medical treatments that target the disease

a holistic approach integrating body, mind and spirit

can provide ease inside and out

 

in the midst of fear, anger, sadness and confusion 

you can reach a quiet, clear place within you 

 

gentle, kind, self-loving yoga provides support and relief

breathing undoes tensions, stress, traumas and anxieties stored in the connective tissue

movement and breathing stimulate detoxification of the body

gentleness fosters self-love

 

above all, the mindfulness practice 

becomes an anchor for many patients

(as it did for my father)

 

once we start listening to the body

attention and self-love

ignite a deep inexplicable healing process
