CERTIFICATE PROGRAM EXPLAINED
Oncology Yoga Professionals are required.
Yoga seems an obvious path for cancer patients and survivors coping with difficult treatments and their ongoing side effects. In fact, oncologist and cancer organizations are recommending yoga and exercise as part of a cancer survivors recovery and management plan.
FOUNDED ON RESEARCH
Yoga is as scientific as it is spiritual.
The body of evidence on therapeutic effects of yoga interventions for cancer patients and survivors is robust and growing. A literature search on “yoga” and “cancer” in the U.S. National Library of Medicine (PubMed) yielded 435 results including observational studies, systematic reviews, and clinical trials. Although a full literature review is beyond the scope of this paper, the studies summarized here suggest yoga can not only help adult cancer patients and survivors manage symptoms and side effects, but also help them lead longer, healthier lives.
