Specialist yoga for people living with or recovering from cancer

This approach was adapted and created by Julie Friedeberger a British Wheel of Yoga Teacher, who found her yoga practice to be invaluable to her after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

The elements of the practice work together holistically to support the healing process on all levels, physical, mental and emotional.

Simple (yet powerful) movements with awareness - repetition so that they can be easily learned and practiced at home. Working systematically, increasing mobility of the joints, stimulating blood and lymph circulation, enhancing vital organs and speeding up the removal of toxins.

The breath and breathing exercises - a range of breathing exercises combined with movement and visualisations, helping to focus awareness.

Breath awareness meditation - thoughts and emotions are allowed to surface into the consciousness so they can be observed, acknowledged accepted and released. A cleansing process that liberates stuck energy and held emotions, it is a therapeutic healing.

Relaxation / Yoga Nidra - calming the nervous system, lowers heart rate and blood pressure, dissolves muscular tension, also helping to improve concentration and sleep.

Yoga Kula

Kula is a Sanskrit word that can be translated as 'community', 'clan' or tribe. A sense of inclusion and belonging that can be cultivated through yogis coming together to practice yoga. The kula is considered sacred because it is a group of people who come together freely, with intention and a shared sense of purpose. In this way, the traditional idea of yoga as a personal and individual practice can be expanded to include more social aspects and experiences of connection with others as well as the self. If we harness the power of connection with loving intention, we can influence even greater positive changes in the larger community outside our yoga world.
