Yoga for Cancer Support
Yoga increases your sense of calm, well being, Not coincidentally, it decreases stress along with physical and psychological pain. Also, MRI results show that yoga elevates your levels of GABA, an amino acid found in the central nervous system which helps you feel calm, and alleviates symptoms of depression and anxiety. The practice of linking the breath with movement stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which promotes the ability to recover, digest, play, and create. These breath-centred yin and yin-yang classes focus on functional alignment and presence. They help you reset, so you feel both relaxed and energized. These sessions, grounded on a safe and welcoming platform, also provide practical tools you can take away to enrich the rest of your day and life.
