Topic #3.2 – Yoga Benefits

1) Reading Assignment #3.2A:

2) Reading Assignment #3.2B

Yoga Interventions for Cancer Patients and Survivors is a robust review of existing research on the benefits of yoga for cancer patients and survivors and how yoga manages short- and long-term side effects faced by most cancer survivors. It was developed by a team of medical writers, oncologist, researchers and yoga4cancer team.  And it is also an initial guide to healthcare professionals on how to include a yoga intervention in their institution. Our hope is that the document is circulated and put in the hands of every doctor, nurse, hospital administrator, caregiver, yoga professional and cancer survivor. Hope is not a plan; yoga can be.
