Yoga teachers and therapists can use this method to modify their offerings to the cancer patients and survivors who come to them for help. yoga4cancer embodies both the science and art of yoga in its teaching philosophies, standards and approach.
A well rounded and active yoga practice with attention to the breath best delivers the benefits of yoga for the cancer population. Thus, yoga4cancer is grounded in the vinyasa style. Unique sequences are carefully constructed with modifications to optimize accessibility.
