Yoga is a mind, body and spirit practice in complementary medicine with origins in ancient Indian philosophy. The various styles of yoga that people use for health purposes typically combine physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation or relaxation.

What to expect from yoga therapy
The cancer experience is challenging and can sometimes leave you feeling uncomfortable in your skin. We can lose our ground, our feeling of stability. There can be residual effects of fear and anxiety and physical trauma in the body that wants to unwrap. Therapeutic Yoga is about coming home; to your breath, to your body, to yourself, and to life in this moment.
One-on-one yoga therapy works individually regarding one's physical and emotional needs through the movement of yoga. It is mindful, releasing, nourishing, restorative and ultimately empowering, as we begin to tend to the body's desire for breath, stability, fluid mobility and supple balance.
