Researchers have found that practicing restorative yoga regularly for only 10 weeks improved the outlook and energy level of breast cancer patients. The women who did a gentle yoga practice were also less likely to become depressed than the test group that did not participate. "The study, published in Psycho-Oncology, found the women had a 50 per cent reduction in depression and a 12 per cent increase in feelings of peace and meaning after the yoga sessions," reported Telegraph.co.uk.

Have any of you had any experiences with yoga's benefits to cancer patients?
