About this Project:
According to the World Health Organization in 2020, there were 2.3 million women diagnosed with breast cancer and 685 000 deaths globally. As of the end of 2020, there were 7.8 million women alive who were diagnosed with breast cancer in the past 5 years, making it the world’s most prevalent cancer. (https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/breast-cancer)
An article from Medically Reviewed: Research also shows that people with breast cancer who do yoga may feel less stressed, enjoy a better quality of life, and improve feelings of relaxation and well-being.
The study also quotes one “2018 Review Trusted Source” that found that low-intensity forms of yoga, such as gentle Hatha and restorative yoga, are safe and effective for treating some symptoms in cancer patients & survivors. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5901971/pdf/nihms951981.pdf)
Benefits of yoga classes for Breast Cancer Patients & Survivors:
This Yoga Therapy class is tailored for Breast Cancer patients & survivors according to their conditions and mobility. Focusing on improving overall mobility & strength helps in adapting to daily life after treatments, boosting the energy levels and performance of organs, and some postures which will soothe specific symptoms, and are complementary to their rehabilitation program. We also include different pranayama and non-religious meditation practices to help them maintain a calm and peaceful mind to cope with pain and stress management. The practice will be beneficial to students on both physical and mental levels.
Andiappan Yoga Community is invited as the Yoga Partner by Global Chinese Breast Cancer Organizations Alliance (GCBC) to introduce yoga to Breast Cancer Patients & Survivors as a therapeutic and overall physical exercise.
The Global Chinese Breast Cancer Organizations Alliance (GCBC) is a conviction, a pledge, and a vision to connect all Chinese breast cancer patients worldwide to fight the disease together. Since the first GCBC Conference in 2006, the team continues to pursue its mission to promote breast cancer patients support, breast health education, breast cancer knowledge and to strengthen the exchange of information and resources sharing among Chinese breast cancer groups in various regions. They are the only platform that links up all the Chinese breast cancer organizations worldwide with more than 70 member organizations

研究還引用了 2018 年的一項評論來自Review Trusted Source，低強度的瑜伽形式，如溫和的哈達瑜伽和恢復性瑜伽，對於治療癌症病患者和倖存者的某些症狀，練習瑜伽是安全而有效的。 (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5901971/pdf/nihms951981.pdf)
