A long term tool to aid in a full breast cancer recovery is a steady yoga practice. The cumulative effect will help restore health and promote a positive sense of well being, in the present moment and well into the future. Start slowly and gradually increase time spent in the yoga poses as well as ultimately adding more poses.
