About this Project:
Andiappan Yoga Community partners with Anahata Yoga Studio to share yoga therapy with women recovering from breast cancer.
“I wanted to explore if yoga practice can help to alleviate the physical symptoms experienced by cancer patients. Stress is one of the most common complaints by many cancer patients. Yoga practice helped these patients to build self-confidence in managing the physical symptoms and thereby improve their overall well-being.” — Andiappan Yoga Community Volunteer Teacher Edward, Wah Gor
