Cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation, can leave a person exhausted, underweight, and depressed. New studies suggest that practicing yoga regularly may alleviate these effects by improving sleep quality, lessening fatigue and muscle soreness, adding healthy muscle weight, quieting the mind and alleviating symptoms of depression and anxiety, releasing endorphins, which are good for both mental and physical health. Practicing yoga even once per week can help with these issues.
Many yoga studios offer classes specifically for cancer survivors or those with other health issues.
