The simplest of yoga breathing, movement, relaxation and meditation techniques can help us to deal with the powerful emotions that may come with a diagnosis of a life-changing illness. They can help us to manage stress, anxiety, and pain of cancer surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Yoga can help in various ways to strengthen the immune system and encourage our inner healing forces. It is especially beneficial to those who are going through a change in their lifes through illness, and yoga offers support both emotionally and physically. Yoga can help us to ‘free our breath’, relieve anxiety and ‘let go ‘ of tension and emotion.
I offer a deeply nourishing yoga practice, which is gentle, graceful and nurturing. It enables the client to become aware of themselves, their minds, their emotions, their bodies and their inner spirit. It is through this connection, that we find space in which to grow and heal. The practice of breath awareness, meditation and relaxation, makes up a wonderful environment for this to happen. The practice of yoga helps to bring the body into a deeper sense of connection and this connection allows us to acknowledge and accept, bringing inner peace and calm.
“Peace comes from within, do not seek it without.”
