Cancer Support

Yoga for Cancer Support

Results from recent studies on yoga and cancer show that the complementary therapy can have many benefits for patients, both mentally and physically. Some of the benefits include:
  • Combat the side effects of treatment
  • Increase resilience and stress-coping capabilities
  • Reduce stress and therefore reduce cortisol
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Improve coping mechanisms – physical and mental wellbeing
  • Decrease Insomnia

Inner Strength Yoga & Healing Center Cancer Support Program

Inner Strength Yoga & Healing Center supports cancer patients and/or survivors by creating a safe, nurturing and healing environment. Cancer patients can receive free yoga, meditation classes, and energy healing sessions. The cost of medical care for cancer is expensive as well as physically and emotionally depleting. Classes for yoga, meditation, or energy healing sessions (such as Reiki or Healing Touch) become a luxury and unaffordable for most cancer patients.

We have observed that yoga is not only strengthening but also encouraging for people who have undergone treatment. Practicing yoga and meditation simply makes you feel good. It makes you healthier in body, mind, and spirit. Yoga allows you to connect with your inner self. Patients report feeling better at the end of a session than before, feeling more relaxed, revitalized, and at peace. With consistent yoga practice, life runs more smoothly because you are tapping into your self-awareness and what is important to you. Energy healing can assist with pain management and relaxation.
