Complimentary and alternative practices are increasingly being shown to help with the pain and discomfort from cancer itself as well as from the medical treatments for cancer. Research has shown that gentle, therapeutic yoga poses as well as calming breathing and meditation practices, can help relieve the stress, anxiety, and sickness associated with both the disease and treatments.
In this workshop, we will do a series of gentle yoga poses, relaxing breath practices, and conclude with an iRest® yoga nidra guided meditation for healing.Research has shown that iRest Yoga Nidra effectively reduces: traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, and chemical dependency.
Workshop includes a handout of poses and moves for home practice. Appropriate for all levels. No yoga experience necessary.
