Restorative Yoga for Patients Living with Cancer

Restorative Yoga facilitates health and relaxation by supporting the body in easy and comfortable positions with props. You can use items available in your environment such as pillows, couch cushions, blankets, blocks, and bolsters. 

Restorative Yoga is profoundly relaxing. It soothes the central nervous system, supports digestion, and improves mood and sleep.

This class may help reduce:

•Back pain
Stress and anxiety
Neck and shoulder tension
Digestive issues
Insomnia

 

Important:

Participants should be able to get down to the floor and come back up from the floor. Modifications might be made to do some postures in bed.

There are some conditions, like recent back surgery and spondylolisthesis, that this program may not be compatible with. 

No prior yoga experience necessary.

Space is limited. Sign up through classes@ocim.ucsf.edu or call 415-353-7718.
