Oncology Yoga

Wow, who knew that oncology interventions (conventional and integrative) and yoga have synergistic qualities in providing wellness and restoration from dis-ease.

You may say, please tell me more?

Yoga is a science and art that impacts Chinese meridians, organs functionality, calms the central nervous system, reduces discomfort, builds strength and so much more!

The field of oncology continues to develop from a conventional and integrative form of disease management. The ability to meld east and west to support patients, survivors and their families with a specialized yoga program has many benefits for everyone touched by cancer.

A metaphor that I appreciate is:

"Yoga, breath, and movement brings balance; cancer and disease brings imbalance."

The various modified poses offered address many issues that everyone faces:

  • Fatigue and weakness

  • Anxiety, depression

  • Fear, worry

  • Lymphatic challenges

  • Detoxification issues

  • Limited range of motion

  • Constipation and flatulence

  • Bone loss

  • and so much more

There are numerous studies that outline the benefits of yoga, breath and movement which is now being offered in Mayo clinic, Cleveland clinic, Memorial Sloan Kettering, and many, many, more facilities world-wide.

I am pleased to share that I will be offering on-line classes in July 2024 so stay tuned :)

Many blessings
