Therapeutic Yoga for People With Cancer

This gentle yoga therapy class is designed to help relieve the stress and fatigue that can result from cancer treatment. You’ll be lying down throughout except for a brief break to practice getting up from and down to the floor using a chair. And, if you’re having a particularly low energy day, you can do this entire practice from bed.

Class includes supportive poses, restorative breathing practices, calm movement  (using purposeful exhalation to ease the nervous system), simple stretches for the lower legs and hips, and a couple of easy movements for lymph stimulation.

Props: blanket, chair, bolster
