It is so important during cancer treatment to begin to relate to the body in a positive and healthy way. Our first week will focus on body and breath awareness through a series of gentle movements, breathing exercises and mudras. Be sure to stay in contact with your body and breath throughout the practice and only do the movements in a range of motion that is completely comfortable.
This article belongs to an 8-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.
