Hi There, I am trying to find out about yoga for my sister-in-law who has breast cancer. this is the 6th time sh'e had it now and is just to start a very hard chemotheraphy again. should she wait till she's taken her course of chemo or would it be ok for her to start it whilst she's having treatment? also is hatha the best yoga for her? and should she really do it with a yoga expert watching or could she do a home dVD? Thanks so much for your help in advance! Kind regards-Kirsty

Hello Molly, I have been teaching yoga to women with breast and ovarian cancer for 8 yrs.Some of the ladies have had reconstructive surgery & my approach is to apply gentle stretching, breathing technique and nurturing relaxation. Done on the mat or in a chair, depends on individual.Might I suggest contacting a Breat/Ovarian Cancer non profit organization as they may provide classes and support groups for you to participate in.
Wishing you a speedy recovery and lots of good health from this point onward.
I've recently had a double mastectomy with a TRAM flap reconstruction (belly tissue.) What can you recommend for my recovery? This is more extensive than a lumpectomy.
