AskTari: Why is yoga helpful for people living with cancer?

 

Tari Answered: “Yoga makes you stronger in mind and body; gives courage, hope and confidence; breaks down barriers of isolation and stigma; and can be a great way to relax.

But not to be underestimated is the connection to others. When you are told you have cancer, often it feels like you are alone. You feel stigmatized because every one treats you differently. Yoga creates community. Knowing you are not alone in your challenge is a tool to finding courage and hope.”
