Fighting cancer must be the hardest journey a person can go through, especially that giving up isn’t an option. Winning the fight against this enemy isn’t only dependent on the strength of the patient but also on the support offered to him by his family and friends, in addition to other practices that empower patients to keep going and enduring the physical and emotional pain that comes with the treatment and therapy. Therapeutic activities such as yoga are widely used nowadays to complement cancer-fighting medical treatment and to help heal the body and mind of not only the cancer patients but also their caregivers and other cancer survivors. If you or someone you know might benefit from yoga for cancer classes, check this list of yoga studios, teachers, and organizations offering this type of yoga in the Seattle area.
