Free monthly yoga for people with cancer

A FREE monthly yoga class will be available to patients with cancer at The Arden Centre,  University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire from September 15, 2016.

The class will run from 10am on every third Thursday of the month and will be taught by Satyananda teacher Caroline Prichard.

Yoga is an integrated system for balancing and harmonising all aspects of the being – body, mind, breath, emotions, psyche, and spirit. When this balance has been disturbed by serious illness, practising yoga can help to restore it. It encourages the development of inner resources to help deal with a life-changing illness, unfolding the qualities of self-awareness, resilience, stability, trust, clarity, and courage that help us to meet life’s challenges and to use them as opportunities for growth and change.

How can yoga help?

Yoga can help to strengthen the immune system.

*       breathing exercises improve respiration, relieve tension, and restore balance and calm.

*       simple movements increase energy levels, help to remove toxic waste, and enhance the functioning of our internal organs and systems.

*       relaxation calms the nervous system, quiets turbulent emotions, and alleviates the anxiety and stress which depress immune functioning and hinder healing.

*       meditation develops the detachment and clarity that enable us to acknowledge and accept the realities of cancer, and to manage our fears and concerns.
