Therapeutic Yoga Benefits Cancer Patients

Cyndi Roberts Yoga of West Hartford announces therapeutic yoga that aids in cancer recovery and comfort.

A regular therapeutic yoga practice can be helpful for people with breast cancer and other cancers to reduce stress, cope, help with pain management and to manage side effects, both during chemotherapy, medical procedures and after.

Therapeutic yoga combines restorative and gentle yoga poses that can be modified to adapt to anyone’s physical needs, even when there is little or no physical energy. Meditation, guided visualizations and breathing exercises, which are also part of a therapeutic practice, can reduce anxiety and pain. Deep breathing can energize and relax students so that they feel calmer during stressful times of diagnosis and treatment, even improving odds of survival.
