Benefits for cancer patients and carers
Yoga can help improve flexibility, strength, muscle tone, and balance; all of which may be compromised when you undergo surgery or prolonged bed rest due to cancer treatments. Yoga can help alleviate symptoms that may be experienced during and after cancer treatment such as anxiety, depression, fatigue, insomnia, muscle tension, nausea, poor motor control, pain, shortness of breath and stress.
