Hope’s Haven Spotlight Gentle Yoga By Kumari

 Yoga for Cancer Patience
Are you currently in treatment? Radiation, chemotherapy, alternate medicine or just plain not treating? This yoga is for you! Learn yoga targeted for the unique needs of those of us with a Cancer diagnosis. This class will cover three basic yogas:
1. The Yoga of Mediation (dhyana)
Cancer is overwhelming. Meditation can help. Have you thought to yourself meditation is too hard? Too boring? Sounds interesting but I don’t know how to start? Or have you, like me, mistaken daydreaming for meditation? Learn in a few minutes a tool you can use for the rest of your life.
2. The Yoga of Simple movement (kriya)
A few weeks after surgery I felt healed enough to start exercising, but nowhere near my former self. Yoga for Cancer patience are simple movements designed to reclaim mobility and soothe lymphedema.
3. The Yoga of Standing poses (asana)
Estrogen blockers giving you osteopenia? Use standing poses to build bone density as part of your healing modality.
Disclaimer: yoga is neither a cure nor preventative for Cancer. This workshop is designed to teach palliative self-care, i.e. patience for ourselves, with our treatment and for our disease
This class is appropriate for anyone at any stage who would like to learn. Although my own Cancer was located in my torso, feel free to come no matter where your Cancer was/is. No experience necessary.
