Yoga and Breast Cancer is a practical, how-to guide to using yoga to manage stress, relieve pain, and gain the strength necessary to make it through this illness. This seminal work follows the author's own research, which has shown a proven correlation between yoga practice and better health outcomes after a breast cancer diagnosis. More than simply an exercise primer, the book is a deeply soothing guide to moving meditation and physical activity, giving readers a safe way to rebuild strength, stamina, and flexibility both during and following cancer treatments. Intended to support women from the critical phases of their disease to times of secondary prevention and rehabilitation, Yoga and Breast Cancer helps them improve awareness of their body, thoughts, and feelings, ultimately guiding them towards a healthier life.

Review:

<p>""Nurse and author Kollak (Yoga for Nurses) and physician Utz-Billing have studied yoga practice specifically with breast cancer patients and consider yoga a significant addition to a recovery protocol. They outline the dynamics of yoga and how the poses-asanas-can be customized for every woman, no matter her physical limitations or length of time postsurgery. The photos clearly illustrate the postures; ""Quick Look"" boxes summarize the moves for each chapter. For all patient health collections.""-Library Journal<p> "" a good practice text and a worthy adjunct for Yoga teachers to accompany their class instruction for students in active breast cancer treatment.""-Yoga Therapy Today<p> ""Like a barely perceptibly rising inclined plane, the book very gently lifts the breast cancer and post-breast cancer patient toward a realistic sense of well-being and inevitable joy with the improved health that accompanies it... [the] elegant pictures, simple contraindications, and thoughtful directions bear witness to the unassuming confidence and serenity with which the book was written, and that may be quite contagious.""- Loren M. Fishman, MD, author of Yoga and Multiple Sclerosis: A Journey to Health and Healing <P>""Yoga and Breast Cancer is a wonderful healing resource for breast cancer survivors.  The core of this book is a series of yoga poses, breathing exercises and meditations specifically sequenced and designed to help heal and nurture women's bodies post surgery. Based on the authors' medical study, these yogic techniques are proven to increase flexibility and strength, reduce anxiety and pain, and to improve one's overall mental well-being. The writing is friendly, practical and is full of informed advice and gentle encouragement.  This well thought out yoga program will be a huge gift to anyone recovering from breast cancer.""-Timothy Burgin, YogaBasics.com <P>""... information that is easy to read and understand. The authors encourage patients to become active immediately after surgery, stress consciousness of body changes upon movement, and therefore provide a means to cope with body stresses and support healing.... This book will benefit breast cancer patients of all ages.""-Cindy Howell MS RN CNOR CMLSO, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston Texas<p> ""This is a valuable resource for patients who are looking for help in gaining strength physically and mentally.""-Doodys Reviews <P>  <P>  <P> </P>
