For those who have completed treatment we can work on allowing the body to process and honour what it has gone through — and begin to lean into the hope of a new chapter. This study shows the vast impact yoga and meditation has on quality of life and well-being in has in cancer survivors.

Your yoga guide

I’m Rosie, a yoga guide with a soft, gentle yet encouraging approach. I was drawn to this form of yoga when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. I travelled to the UK, and under the expert guidance of Jude Mills and Richard Harding, completed a 95 HR Yoga Certificate for Those Living with Cancer. It is an incredible honour to be able to offer my students solace and hope during treatments, and post treatment and really see the wonderful effects that yoga offers for people living with cancer.  

Why these session might be of help

 Here are some benefits of yoga for those living with cancer: 

 

Physical Comfort and Well-being

Yoga offers gentle movements and stretches that can help alleviate physical discomfort and promote overall well-being for individuals living with cancer. These practices are adapted to accommodate different levels of mobility and energy, providing relief from symptoms such as pain, stiffness, and fatigue.

 

Emotional Support and Stress Reduction

Coping with cancer can be emotionally challenging, and yoga provides valuable tools for managing stress, anxiety, and depression. Mindfulness practices, breathing techniques, and meditation help individuals cultivate a sense of calm and inner peace, fostering emotional resilience and well-being.

 

Improved Quality of Life

Engaging in regular yoga practice can enhance the quality of life for individuals living with cancer by promoting feelings of empowerment, hope, and positivity. Yoga offers a holistic approach, helping to ease not only physical symptoms but also support emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of well-being.

 

Enhanced Range of Motion and Flexibility

Cancer and its treatments can sometimes result in decreased range of motion and flexibility in the body. Yoga offers gentle movements and stretches that help improve flexibility, mobility, and circulation, allowing individuals to maintain or regain function and vitality.

 

Empowerment and Self-Compassion

Yoga encourages individuals to listen to their bodies, honor their limitations, and cultivate self-compassion. By learning to tune into their own needs and instincts, individuals living with cancer can feel empowered to take an active role in their healing journey and make choices that support their overall well-being.
