Yoga helps Reduce Fatigue in Breast Cancer Survivors

Students relaxing in Yoga for Cancer Survivors @ GHS
According to a study by University of California, Breast Cancer survivors who practiced yoga for three hours per week for three months experienced significant reductions in fatigue and inflammation. Health experts believe that these findings may be generalize-able to other conditions that involve fatigue and inflammation of the body. A second study investigating Iyengar Yoga with participants practicing three hours of yoga per week for three months led to significant reductions in severity of fatigue. Results from these studies show that yoga practice leads to reductions in overall fatigue and the intensity of fatigue. Yoga is an incredible complementary care that pairs well with your doctor's treatment plan, healthy lifestyle choices and regular sleep habits. Find a therapeutic yoga class near you and get to know the other students in the class for best results. Namaste ya'll! :-)
