Yoga and meditation are steps in a positive direction for cancer patients, survivors and caregivers coping with difficult treatments and ongoing side effects. According to the National Cancer Institute, more than 10 million Americans alive today have experienced and battled cancer and more than a million people are diagnosed each year. Research studies that have taken place at cancer centers around the world, that have shown yoga and other types of mind-body practices can help improve patient treatment outcomes and quality-of-life. Doctors are now recommending yoga as a way to manage anxiety, depression and overall mental-emotional-physical wellness of their patients. In particular, several studies have been done where patients noticed improved sleep, increased energy and reduced fatigue levels. In 2012, the American Cancer Society recommended up to 150 minutes of exercise per week, with a specific focus on the benefits of yoga and meditation. Yoga can reduce the chance of cancer by reducing stress, along with many other benefits, and the chance of it reoccurring. So More and more cancer survivors are coming to yoga classes to gain these benefits. This yoga class incorporates gentle yoga poses (asanas), special meditation, breathing techniques (pranayama) and other healing practices, to create a mind-body-spirit experience. This class will use supportive practices to create ease and comfort to the body as a result from the disease and its treatment, especially lymph distribution and the immune system, as well as offering relief for the mental challenges. All levels of experience are welcome. We will be offering a class specifically designed to address the special needs of people undergoing treatment for cancer, survivors and caregivers. ...
