Oncology Yoga is an evidence-based yoga practice that addresses the specific needs of cancer patients and survivors.

An Oncology Yoga session will:
build strength and flexibility

improve sleep and reduce anxiety
increase bone density
maintain a healthy body weight
help manage side effects like lymphedema, constipation and neuropathy
improve a sense of wellbeing and confidence
encourage survivors to participate in their wellness plan
And is innately trauma-informed.
