Yoga for cancer (Y4C) was founded by Tari Prinster, who herself is a cancer survivor. Tari created this wonderful program using Vinyasa principles with movement and breath. Vinyasa is a style of yoga that teaches one to move with your breath from one posture to another, like in a smooth flow.
This yoga methodology will help alleviate many side effects caused by cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, and reconstruction. The methodology will also support physical and emotional needs by stimulating the immune system through movement, and this in turn will provide increased strength, improved flexibility, and reduced stress and anxiety. This style of yoga will bring calmness and boost overall well being.
Tari is a master yoga teacher and she has been offering Y4C (yoga for cancer) training for the past 14 years. In her perspective, this Y4C methodology is a unique approach that is beyond gentle yoga or restorative yoga and stimulates lymphatic drainage and strengthens the immune system.
