Yoga Helps Overcome Obstacles During Recovery

by Diana Ross on 06/09/12

Breast Cancer Yoga is a specific exercise practice that targets those that suffer from physical and emotional fatigue.  BCY addresses and assist in breast cancer recovery from pain and fatigue, resulting in a positive sense of wellbeing. Through increased oxygen consumption by breathing deeply into each pose the results will be renewed vitality. When you begin slowly building a yoga practice you will begin notice positive energy, increased flexibility, decreased pain, stimulation of the organs and glands, increased blood flow, and more. It is important not to over due at first but to gradually implement a daily yoga practice. It is also important to maintain a positive attitude and know through time and practice there will be improvement to fatigue by: improved sleep, decreased joint pain, increased energy, mental calm, increase range of motion, strength, increased resistance, low stress hormone and the psychological benefits.  We recommend first that you speak with your health care provider before starting any exercise program.

Remember as you begin to practice yoga poses with awareness, you not only begin to feel better but you will also be able to feel; that is, you become sensitive to everything and everyone around you. As inner awareness expands and deepens both within and outside the body, we consciously begin to overcome obstacles of fear, pain, anxiety. You can practice yoga in such a way that the practice becomes a much “larger yoga.” Our true nature is revealed through this new sensitivity and awareness. We intuitively begin to discover how to overcome certain obstacles on this journey with breast cancer.
