Anxiety is a major factor for anyone going through cancer treatment and can have a hugely negative impact on quality of life. This week we will focus on calming anxiety, stress and worry through a series of gentle movements, breathing exercises and mudras that will all ease the intensity of anxious moments. Be sure to periodically check in with how the body, breath and mind are affected by these practices and your awareness of each of these levels of your being.
This article belongs to a 10-part series of home practices that were developed as part of the 2013 Research Survey conducted at the Cancer Support Community San Francisco East Bay by Cheryl Fenner Brown, E-RYT 500.

I attend Cheryl's class regularly and feel that my practice has improved immensely over the past few years due to her expert coaching. Her teaching style is clear and compassionate and her previous experience in teaching adults is evident in her organized approach and easy to understand instructions. I also appreciate that Cheryl not only teaches us about how to correctly position ourselves, but also touches on many aspects of yoga philosophy, which in turn has deepened my personal practice and heightened my awareness of the connection between mind and body, breath and relaxation.
