Reduce Cancer-Related Fatigue, (CRF)
Fatigue is very common in breast cancer patients. Fatigue can prevent you from functioning normally and impacts the quality of life. Poor oxygenation due to improper breathing contributes also to low energy that causes listlessness and depression. Consider the following to reduce fatigue:
  • Practicing specific flowing poses
  • Breathing properly
  • Eating well
  • Getting enough rest will ultimately allow for energy to return

Breast Cancer Yoga has created a new yoga DVD that can be used for cancer related fatigue. This DVD contains unique restorative yoga poses that are gentle, flowing and meditative. The DVD's focus is on building strength, flexibility and potential for breast cancer recovery. Breast Cancer Yoga is designed to repair breast tissue, improve circulation of lymph and blood flow. It encourages feelings of safety and support through the use of props. Synchronized movement and breath create a mood of meditation, and relaxation. All combined there is increased vitality and hope. ​
