Yoga for Cancer Support
I discovered my "calling" when I started working with weSPARK Cancer Support Center in 2004. I have years of expertise in adapting yoga to the needs of those with cancer, and I am passionate about helping individuals thrive and successfully navigate the challenges that arise during and post treatment. I have worked extensively with weSPARK Cancer Support Center and the Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center at Providence Hospital, and have taught and lectured at Northridge Hospital and Mission Hills Providence Hospital.
Why is yoga helpful for cancer patients?
Grappling with cancer can be one of life's greatest challenges. Yoga and meditation can be a powerful tool for reducing stress, anxiety, and pain. Yoga simultaneously relaxes the mind, strengthens the body, and helps one draw on their own healing resources within. Sessions focus on breath work, gentle movement, meditation, and visualization, and not on attaining the "perfect pose." Most of the postures can be done seated, lying down, or with a chair -- a benefit for those who are fatigued or who have limited mobility. As an experienced yoga therapist, I will tailor our program to your specific needs.
One-on-one yoga therapy can be a vital part of your healing process. Please do not hesitate to reach out for a free phone consultation at (323) 438-9972.
