“Cancer takes your breath away. Yoga gives it back.”
Yoga 4 Cancer (y4c) method is gentle and restorative. Additionally, it is an evidence-informed style yoga focusing on the scientific foundation of movement and breath, with attention on the special needs of cancer patients or survivors.
The global y4c network includes trained teachers, resources, research initiatives and strong partnerships that are focused on providing the quality of support cancer survivors need and want.
As both a y4c trained teacher and cancer survivor, I am aware of and understand the cautions and risks in generic yoga styles for cancer survivors. This provides a unique perspective on which postures (asanas) work best, and which DO NOT WORK and could be harmful.
The immune system, including the lymphatic system, cardiovascular system, digestive system, skeletal/muscular system, respiration system and nervous system are all relative to the movements with y4c
Recovery and healing of your body, mind and spirit through y4c, as a gradual process and self compassionate method. A weekly y4c practice provides a safe, fulfilling yoga experience.
“The survivor yoga class has been an emotional and physical bridge to my recovery. I started my yoga with the group before my chemo. This kind of support can not be found in a “regular” yoga class.” –Andrea, Cancer survivor
