Breast Cancer Yoga Project

Becky Morrissey, LPCC-S, LICDC-CS, eRYT500, C-IAYT provides low-cost individual sessions and small group recovery yoga classes, applying yoga approaches specific to breast cancer recovery in all aspects of wellbeing. Creating a home practice with a resourceful community for supportive growth and education (a sangha (song-gah) is the goal and vision of this offering for each breast cancer survivor/yoga practitioner. 

Your recovery is unique to you, and a yoga practice which supports your specific healing is one of the best practices and gifts for self-directed recovery enrichment. An individual session can help you co-create with your wise healing body and mind for your dimensional, individual recovery. 

 

Becky can help you tap into this wisdom and design a yoga sequence of movements and breath practices to nourish your specific needs in a 30-45 minute session, even with no previous yoga experience.

Yoga can lower fatigue, inflammation in

Breast Cancer Survivors

Practicing yoga for as little as three months can reduce fatigue and lower inflammation in breast cancer survivors, according to new research from The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital & Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James). The more the women in the study practiced yoga, the better their results.
