Whether you are currently in active treatment of cancer, a cancer survivor, newly diagnosed, in treatment, gathering strength or thriving, a regular yoga practice tailored to support the realities of cancer in your life while bringing your sense of Self, empowerment and community to life can be a life-changing resource.
Restorative Yoga is a passive and gentle, yet powerful practice consisting of seated and supine poses typically held for several minutes.
Moving slowly into and holding these opening postures alongside intentional breath work allows the practitioner to calm and center the mind and nervous system while accessing deep opening and release within the body.
Restorative Yoga was developed to access connective tissues allowing for deepening flexibility and aiding healing while increasing energy flow.
Yoga not only helps improve your body, but also helps with mindfulness and meditation. It is important to take a break from daily life in order to focus on yourself and get clarity. Focusing on your breath during practice is key to staying in tune with your mind and body.
