A study conducted by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, found women being treated for early-stage breast cancer who participated in a yoga program experienced a smaller decline in social well-being than women who did not do yoga. In addition, among the women who were not currently receiving chemotherapy, yoga improved overall quality of life and mood. The findings were reported in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. If you are a cancer survivor who benefited from yoga, please let us know.
