Cancer Patient Relief

 

Therapeutic Yoga is gaining increased recognition as a vital part of a holistic support program for people living with and after cancer. In our sessions, we find tailored practices which can help manage cancer- related side effects such as peripheral neuropathy, lymphoedema, reduced range of motion, fatigue and anxiety. 

 

 

Using evidenced-based practices including gentle movements, breathing exercises and wonderful relaxations I hope to offer a little piece of peace, and a whole lot of empowerment to people during this difficult time.

 

Since 2013 I have offered relaxation and gentle therapeutic yoga sessions to people undergoing treatment for cancer, including CanAssist Diversional Therapy Program, and specialist classes at Chris O'Brien Lifehouse, Australia's first specialist cancer hospital in Sydney.

 

Weekly Classes run at Chris O'Brien Lifehouse Comprehensive Cancer Centre in Camperdown, Sydney.

Tuesdays 11.45am-1pm

This class is currently online

New classes coming late 2020
