Yoga and Breast Cancer is a practical, how-to guide to using yoga to manage stress, relieve pain, and gain the strength necessary to make it through this illness. This seminal work follows the authors' own research, which has shown a proven correlation between yoga practice and better health outcomes after a breast cancer diagnosis. More than simply an exercise primer, the book is a deeply soothing guide to moving meditation and physical activity, giving readers a safe way to rebuild strength, stamina, and flexibility both during and following cancer treatments. Intended to support women from the critical phases of their disease to times of secondary prevention and rehabilitation, Yoga and Breast Cancer helps them improve awareness of their body, thoughts, and feelings, ultimately guiding them towards a healthier life.
