Yoga for Cancer: The A-Z of C

Vicky Fox

‘Vicky’s positivity and absolutely fabulous classes have been a godsend to me. I thought it was medication and supplements that would help me on my healing journey, but actually it has been the mind body connection that has been the most powerful.’ A 2021 cancer patient

Specialist yoga teacher Vicky Fox shows how to mitigate the side effects of cancer diagnosis and treatment using yoga (‘breath-informed movement’), starting with A for Anxiety and working through to Z for ZZZZZZZZZ (sleep/insomnia) to help anyone diagnosed with any type of cancer cope with the symptoms and the symptoms of treatment. They won’t have to read it from cover to cover but can dip into it at will to access information about a specific side effect or symptom relevant to them personally. The book takes readers through breathing exercises (pranayama), physical postures (asana), hand gestures (mudras) and sounds/meditations (mantras) that can support, ease and make life more comfortable.
