“My journey in creating this DVD came from a personal search for a yoga DVD for my mother, a 22-year survivor and ongoing battler of breast cancer. As more and more women are living and surviving this disease, there is also an emotional and physical toll that is exacted on their bodies and psyches. My goal was to help alleviate some aches and pains, speed healing and recovery, and provide calmness of mind and spirit. While I had read about studies extolling the virtues of yoga in healing breast cancer, I couldn’t find any videos tailored to fighting breast cancer specifically. And from this inspiration, “Yoga for Breast Cancer” was born! “
Along with an amazing instructor, Denise Hopkins, Thriving Yoga has created a fantastic video, one of the first of its kind, utilizing breath, asanas, and guided meditation to create a healing and powerful practice that can be done at any time, in the convenience and privacy of home. Yoga For Cancer has pledged that 10% of all videos produced are donated to cancer centers, survivor groups, and hospitals in an effort to touch as many lives as possible.
Yoga For Breast Cancer incorporates a special series of poses that will increase flexibility, bring healing energy to the areas that need it most, calm the nervous system, and relax the mind and body. “We are just beginning to understand the profound impact and power of the mind-body connection as it relates to cancer.” Studies have shown that women with breast cancer who participated regularly in yoga classes were more relaxed, experienced less pain and fatigue, had a better quality of life, and were half as likely to be depressed than their counterparts.
The Thriving Yoga logo is bamboo. Bamboo is a hardy plant, thriving where planted, even in shady and rocky terrain. Its roots reach deep and it shoots toward the sun regardless of surrounding conditions. In a nutshell, it thrives, no matter what nature throws its way!
Yoga For Cancer is no longer in business but you can find other yoga videos on Amazon.
