My mother has lived with metastatic breast cancer for 22 years. Over the years, as I have tuned into the ebb and flow of her life and moods, the pattern of relapse always came immediately on the heels of a time of great stress or trauma. Yoga can help us to learn to ride the waves of life with balance and equanimity, using our practice to supportourselves in times of stress, and to celebrate ourselves and our connection to the earth in times of joy. In yoga, the neck is considered a bridge between the mind and the body. Use this pose to really strengthen that connection, breathing through and clearing blockages that impede our capacity to laugh, live and love fully in the moment.
