Greetings and Salutations to All of You,

Thank you for posting these links about Yoga and Cancer research studies. I was present at a Yoga teacher conference about this subject at the old Aura Wellness Center location in North Providence, RI. It saddened me to read about the flooding that building took, that caused Paulji to relocate to Massachusetts. At that time, one speaker mentioned how certain forms of Yoga are too taxing after recovering.

As you can imagine Bikram Yoga, Hot, Ashtanga, Power, and Vinyasa were considered too much, especially, if someone is recovering after chemotherapy. Also, holding standing postures too long was considered counter-productive. Generally speaking, Gentle Restorative Yoga or a gentle form of Iyengar could also be a good fit.

Peace,

Hamed
