The Fight against breast cancer
“Open your heart, breath in resilience and allow yourself to exhale slowly letting go of breast cancer.”
Many cancer patients and survivors are using ancient mind-body practices and other complementary therapies to help manage the emotional and psychological side effects that often result from cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Yoga is a good example which had origins in the East and involve slow physical movement, mental focus, and deep breathing.
According to the National Institutes of Health, there is also some evidence to suggest yoga may be helpful when used with conventional medical treatment to help relieve some of the symptoms linked to cancer, asthma, diabetes, drug addiction, high blood pressure, heart disease, and migraine headaches.
The American Cancer Society recommends cancer survivors get at least 150 minutes of exercise each week, which should include strength training at least 2 days a week.
A Yoga for Breast Cancer Awareness, was dedicated to CW3 Yazmin Toro, a military and life warrior.
One of my soul’s sis who 2 yrs ago, during a Tango lesson broke my heart with her diagnose of Breast Cancer.
I promised to her that the mandala with a dragon within (I painted the following Sunday ) would represent her battle against the dragon. The same way Archangel Michael defeated the enemy, she did the same.
Today I was able to walk my promise dedicating her our yoga class to honor her courage.
Namaste Yaz 🙏🏼
