Yoga is an excellent tool for accessing the body’s amazing capacity to heal itself. Pranayama (breath practice) can help to relax the body, still the mind, and help people connect with Spirit, while asana practice (yoga poses) helps cancer patients and survivors to reconnect with their bodies. In, Yoga for Cancer, Prinster, a yoga instructor and cancer survivor herself, gives clear evidence as to the benefits of yoga for cancer patients and survivors, and presents a rationale approach to a safe and well balanced asana practice. A ‘must read’ for those contemplating yoga as a means to take charge of their lives after a diagnosis of cancer.

- Julie A. Rosenberg, MD, Oncologist, Yoga Instructor (RYT-200)

Yoga for Cancer is a yoga prescription for healthy action for those touched by cancer. Having been through the cancer trenches herself, Tari offers support born of experience and tough love liberally sprinkled with compassion. Not one to coddle the countless survivors who have come to her classes and workshops, Tari prefers to empower them with strength, determination, comfort, and self-love. In this book she gives them the tools they need to shore up their immune system, strengthen their resolve, and fall back in love with themselves. As a writer and yoga teacher, I can say this book makes an important contribution to our collective knowledge of the healing powers of yoga.

- Linda Sparrow, author and yoga teacher

Tari Prinster was my Yoda-in-a-tank-top when I was working through the residual physical and spiritual effects of recovery from breast cancer. I began taking her yoga classes simply to get back the range of motion in my arm and chest muscles, but her class taught me much more. It was a place where we all learned to shut up and listen to our bodies and be okay with whatever they were telling us. I left stronger, inside and out. She expresses the lessons of her classes now in this book, and I’m thrilled she’ll get to touch so many more people.

- Shelley Lewis – broadcast executive, survivor and author of “Five Lessons I didn’t learn from Breast Cancer (and the one big one I did)”

This book is a terrific guide for survivors to do a daily practice. It explains the benefits of yoga that directly address treatment side effects – short and long term. It’s goal is to bring this method of yoga for cancer as a beacon to every survivor in the form of a book.  Tari did a wonderful job creating this step-by-step method and survivors everywhere will benefit.’
