Yoga is a popular mind-body practice that combines movement, breathing, relaxation and meditation exercises to calm the nervous system and balance the body, mind, and spirit.
The Integrative Medicine Service offers gentle, restorative yoga classes and one-on-one sessions taught by oncology-trained yoga therapists. This type of yoga uses chairs and props and is gentle enough to practice during cancer treatment to help reduce anxiety, increase energy and support physical and emotional well-being. It can also benefit people recovering from cancer to ease back into a gentle exercise program and manage stress.
- Virtual group instruction is available to patients, caregivers and loved ones.
- Virtual individual yoga instruction personally tailored to a patient’s unique needs and physical abilities can be scheduled by contacting the Integrative Medicine Clinic.
- Hospitalized patients at the Moffitt Magnolia campus may have a member of their medical team request a yoga therapist visit their hospital room to provide gentle yoga relaxation in the chair or bed.
