Yoga for Cancer is the first DVD created exclusively to address the needs of breast cancer battlers and survivors. The yoga poses were chosen not only for their stress reducing and energizing properties, but also to address the unique needs of breast cancer battlers. It incorporates a special series of poses that will increase flexibility, bring healing energy to the areas that need it most, calm the nervous system, and relax the mind and body. We are just beginning to understand the profound impact and power of the mind-body connection as it relates to cancer. Studies have shown that women with breast cancer who participated regularly in yoga classes were more relaxed, experienced less pain and fatigue, had better quality of life, and were half as likely to be depressed than their counterparts. We seek to complement traditional medicine and treatments with our healing and restorative yoga practice. The video creates active energy through standing poses, restorative energy through mat poses, and mental and physical relaxation from meditation. The practice can be done in the privacy of your home, with friends, or in a communal setting with other survivors. Our goal is to move from surviving breast cancer to thriving after breast cancer. 50% of all videos produced are donated to cancer care centers and hospitals to share with patients.

Given the latest NY Times article on the dangers of yoga, practitioners should be aware a yoga practice has to be smart, balanced, and run by a great teacher. Denise Hopkins pace is brilliant, her voice warm and inviting--I really feel like she's part of my team.
As someone who has done quite a bit of yoga, it's great for BC survivors...but great in general. Highly recommended. I'm grateful to have this in my collection!
