Curious about how other survivors are using their yoga practice, I asked some YB yogi's about their yoga practice. Susan, a five year breast cancer
survivor, has been actively engaged in reaching out to other woman. Not only has Susan practiced yoga for twenty years, she has become a registered yoga teacher (RYT). She teaches yoga to breast cancer patients and says, "My yoga work has been with breast cancer patients who have had reconstruction. Once they have the okay from their surgeon, we use very gentle asanas to improve range of motion and help prevent scar tissue. We use breath work to reduce pain and anxiety. I encourage my "clients" to also take classes and develop a home yoga practice to nurture a sense of balance and well-being." Susan also helps as a Patient Navigator, someone who helps newly diagnosed patients move through the many questions and treatment options. Susan also participated in a movie
about breast reconstruction and continues to share her story, advocate for others and bring awareness to cancer survivorship.
