Whether it’s the stress and anxiety brought on by the initial diagnosis, the fatigue brought about by treatment, or the pain that comes with so many forms of cancer, yoga has been shown to provide effective relief from all the above in various studies.
I’ve seen the transformative and healing effects of yoga on cancer patients first hand. Whilst studying for a Diploma entitled “Teaching yoga to people living with cancer”, my own mother was diagnosed with the disease, and I’ve gone on to work with a number of other cancer patients since then. Helping people at this most difficult time is one of the biggest privileges of my work.
“Three years ago I was diagnosed with cancer. Lisa’s support through this time was invaluable not just physically but mentally. She seemed to read what I needed at a time when I was both confused and depressed. She was able to guide me to a ‘still’ point in myself. She is an outstanding teacher. I am most grateful.” ~ Yvonne Saville
