I was diagnosed with squamos cell anal cancer on February 13th of 2009 soon after my 50th birthday.I have had 2 rounds of chemo and 6 weeks of daily radiation. I am looking to regain my Yoga strength and have just started feeling as if it is possible!

Hi Ron, Just read your profile, hope you are continuing to doing well :)

I am a yoga teacher that specializes in teaching to people with cancer (patients & survivors). I had a client last weekend that was also a survivor of anal cancer...she was telling me that many of the poses that we do while sitting are very uncomfortable for you have any recommendations that I can share with her, either ways to make her more comfortable during class or maybe some modifications?  I would greatly appreciate any insight you may have...

Thanks so much! Good luck to you on your road to survivorship!

Hi Ron! Did you fill out a form under the "For Survivors" tab? I believe you have to fill out a survey first, and then a chapter director will contact you and let you know the availability of any spots in your area. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask:)
