What can movement do for you?
The beauty of yoga is that everybody can do it and it can be done anywhere.
What is it and how can it help me?
We're not talking about headstands, impossible arm balancing or power performance yoga. We’re talking about a deeply nourishing practice to help you navigate your way through your cancer journey.
- gentle nourishing yoga
- functional movement
- breath awareness
- guided relaxation
During and after treatment, it’s hard to predict how you are going to feel from one day to another. Feeling completely depleted and weary to the bone one day and full of energy and superhuman the next.
For the days when fatigue is the challenge then a super gentle practice done in bed or sat in a chair can be deeply nourishing and relaxing. And for the days when you have the energy but you’re struggling to find inner strength, then we can start to find it on the outside by adding strength building into your yoga practice. Once you feel that strength in your body, you may start to feel it in your heart and mind, too.
