Yoga and Breast Cancer is a practical how to guide to using yoga to manage stress, relieve pain, and gain the strength necesary to make it through this illness. It follows the authors' own research in the subject that has shown a proven correlation between yoga practice and better health and outcomes after a breast cancer diagnosis. More than simply an exercise guide, the book is a deeply soothing form of moving meditation and physical activity that is a safe way to rebuild strength, stamina, and flexibility both during and following cancer treatments.
It is intended to support women during the critical phases of their disease as well as during times of secondary prevention and rehabilitation. It shows how yoga ameliorates difficulties after breast cancer therapy, improves a womans awareness of her body, thoughts and feelings, and guides towards leading a healthier life.
Kollak (Alice-Salomon U. of Applied Sciences, Berlin) and Dr. Utz-Billing (German Red Cross Hospital) explain how to use yoga to manage stress, relieve pain, reduce vulnerability, and enhance resistance. Detailed instructions emphasize proper body alignment and breathing. B&w photographs illustrate basic stances, supine postures, eye exercises, standing postures, and stretching techniques.
