Why is yoga4cancer Different?
yoga4cancer (or y4c) is an evidence-informed oncology yoga method tailored to address the specific physical and emotional needs left by the cancer and cancer treatments. The approach matches breath and movement to stimulate the immune system, improve flexibility & strength, reduce anxiety and boost overall well-being. The approach goes beyond the gentle and restorative yoga that are commonly offered in wellness cancer centers as the only yoga illness interventions. Based on the latest research and recommendations, we mitigate the short and long term side effects that cancer patients and survivors face like bone loss, lymphedema, scar tissue, constipation, neuropathy and many more. Our goal is to support cancer survivors in achieve the American Cancer Society and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services exercise recommendation of achieving between 150 – 320 minutes of exercise per week to speed recovery or defend against cancer occurrence and reoccurrence.
