YOGA-BASED CANCER REHABILITATION PROGRAM

The Langeloth Foundation, and Other Private Sources

You have probably heard a lot about yoga recently in the press, from friends, associates, or local advertisements. Much of this popularity is based on its many benefits. In addition to increasing physical fitness and flexibility, research has shown that yoga can improve the health of patients with a heart disease, diabetes, asthma, chronic pain, migraines, and anxiety. But what about cancer? We know that cancer patients can experience a number of physical and emotional symptoms and side effects from the diagnosis and/or its treatment. Recent research has begun to show that yoga can help improve overall quality of life, emotional well-being, physical symptoms, and emotional distress among cancer patients and survivors.

Here at the Albert Einstein Cancer Center, researchers are studying the physical and emotional effects of yoga on patients with breast, lung and colorectal cancers. Below is a specific description of our yoga program:
