The Stress-Disease Connection: How Yoga Can Help
Emotionally, Yoga offers cancer patients a way to reconnect with their bodies- a way to love them again, rather than staying in the betrayal that is often felt.......
Receiving a disease diagnosis places a tremendous psychological and emotional weight on one’s shoulders. Science has shown that this physically impacts our immune function—compounding whatever condition we suffer from. The resulting anxiety can weaken the body’s ability to care for itself.
bring calm and ease to the mind
enhance immune function.
improve sleep quality
enhance energy levels
improve quality of life.
The American Cancer Society acknowledges that yoga for cancer can "reduce levels of stress and bring about feelings of relaxation and well-being...[and] enhance quality of life for cancer patients." By releasing tension and relaxing the body and mind, yoga can revitalize immune function and restore the body’s ability to heal itself.
Yoga offers cancer patients and survivors, as well those suffering other serious conditions,a chance to go from a place of surviving to a place where they can once again begin to thrive.
