Yoga is a great help to those with various illnesses and physical battles, including mesothelioma. We are sharing this article below from Mesothelioma.net about the benefits of practicing yoga for mesothelioma patients.
Yoga is an ancient practice that combines movement, specific poses, controlled breathing, and relaxation or meditation. It is also a philosophy and a way of life to which some people devote themselves. You don’t have to be completely devoted to yoga to benefit from this ancient practice. Many people practice it weekly or daily and are able to manage pain, maintain a healthy weight, reduce stress, and more.
For mesothelioma patients there are many benefits of practicing yoga regularly. It can help to mitigate the effects of treatment and simply help patients relax, take their minds off of cancer, and learn to better cope with terminal illness. Practicing yoga as a cancer patient may mean making some modifications, but with the guidance of a trained and experienced instructor, anyone can see positive results.
