It shouldn’t be a surprise to know that most of us are tense; and it doesn’t take much to get there. Now throw in an illness, disease or certain situation and that tension is compounded. I don’t know about you but it doesn’t take much for me to feel tension. It’s getting the tension to subside and go that is the challenge. Research shows tension held in the mind and body can have devastating health consequences. The benefits of relaxing the body while allowing the mind to rest can help in our recovery. Typically we may choose something artificial, like a drug to induce relaxation but the truth is it is superficial relaxation. This may mask the cause of the tensions, whereas introducing a Yoga Nidra practice can over time with regularity release the overall tensions. Learning Yoga Nidra is what will improve quality of life and healing. It is relaxation in action.

The truth is we function fully when we are relaxed. It is here when we feel a clear connection or continuous flow. However, when we lack the ability to eat well, hold positive thoughts, repeat habitual bad habits or embrace any negativity we suffer with excess tension. When we hold these tensions we begin the habit of continued holding, thus blocking the proper flow of energy and the capacity towards wellness. We know it isn’t working but we continue known the less. This is why Yoga Nidra can help us begin to remove these detrimental tensions to mind and body.

The Best Relaxation Response

Yoga Nidra, commonly known as “deep relaxation” is an integral part of yoga teachings. Yoga Nidra is a set of deep relaxation techniques that can lead you to a meditative state, which encourages a sense of well-being. Things become noticeable and vibrant, like these apple blossoms. It is usually introduced at the end of each asana (yoga) class and is known as Shavasana. It is here we begin to have a real relationship with our body and it is here also where we learn to “let go”. This letting go allows us to feel light and begin to realize the more subtle inner states of consciousness.

When we enter into the subtle realm of our conscious awareness, our body begins to relax and our mind opens to observe what is actually happening. Things just are. The more we detach from the negative thoughts, and the holding of unnecessary tensions we no longer identify with it all and we begin to find our way into a clearer space. A space where we can release, or cleanse ourself of the stresses of illness, anxieties of treatments, and fear of outcomes. The state of worry will be more manageable. When we relax the body, and calm the mind, negative emotions have no place to reside. The mind begins to be have clear thoughts and will move towards right action. The worried state dissipates leaving a tranquil state of mind, and body.

As we travel down this road of learning how to relax either through meditation, breathing or just being still we free our mind of false emotions or wrong thinking. As this begins to happen we are open to a clearer realization or higher knowledge. This will lead us to continuous relaxation in life. True relaxation comes as spiritual consciousness awakens. Yoga Nidra is the pathway to the inner expansion of awareness and a deeper balance in life.

In Yoga Nidra we appear to be in a sleep state, but we really are letting the outer world slide away and the inner world heighten. You could say that Yoga Nidra is conscious sleep or sleepless sleep. Yoga Nidra produces its greatest results by developing a regular practice of relaxation. A regular practice insures freedom from energy depleting tension, worry and fear. As a friend used to say to me “The only thing that comes from tension, worry or fear is more tension, worry and fear.” Start with 10 minutes lying down, wrapped in a blanket in a quiet place and then focus on your breath. If your mind wanders bring it back, and just let go. Try our Breathe with Purpose CD  .

How Does Yoga Help Those Undergoing Treatment for Breast Cancer?

Yoga For Breast Cancer Treatments

By Breast Cancer Yoga Staff.

Yoga addresses the side effect distresses of (breast) cancer. These side effects can include lymphedema (swelling), cancer-related fatigue, nausea, pain, weight loss, sleep disorders, stress, fear, anxiety, depression and restlessness. In current studies of women managing these symptoms of distress the following was reported: those doing yoga therapy showed a significant reduction in side effect and symptom distresses. Their (QOL) Quality of Life was shown to be significantly higher when practicing yoga. Anxiety, emotional stress, fear and negative moods are common causes of poor (QOL). The entire recovery process can disrupt routines, relationships, careers and other aspects of life. Yoga offers the opportunity to alleviate these obstacles and decrease there interference with recovery. Yoga assists in diminishing suffering from common chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Depression is also important to address with (breast) cancer patients. The uncertainty about prognosis and treatment, concerns of pain or even death, lack of physical and functional abilities and social changes contribute to depression. Patients who practice yoga appear to cope better with symptoms of illness, and the side effects and distresses of treatments. It is sited that the physical poses, breathing exercises, meditation techniques are especially helpful components of a yoga practice.

Where do you begin? Not everyone is disciplined enough to do their yoga at home and others thrive with a home routine. Here are some suggestions on how to start a yoga practice:

  • Start slow, make sure you create a practice that can grow as you regain strength and stamina.
  • Find a place at home that is quiet and well ventilated.
  • Set a time each day or every other day that encourages a routine.
  • Find a competent yoga teacher that teaches to the cancer community or a special breast cancer yoga DVD.
  • Dress comfortably, there should be no constriction for the breath.
  • Eat a light breakfast at least a hour beforehand.
  • Don’t be hard on yourself just persevere. It does get easier, and it is important to manage a self care practice.

One of the many benefits of yoga therapy is that the practice awakens positive emotions, builds self-confidence and reduces depression. There is an openness of spirit that leads to greater understanding when the practice of yoga is embraced. This all can be achieved but there must be determination and fortitude.

Yoga can be a lot of fun. Enjoy every deep, slow breath while moving your arms, legs and torso. It is so important to evenly pace the movement with the breath. The breath is key to your wellness. It too balances the mind, body and spirit. It is the cosmic gas station. “If the mind wanders the breath will follow.” Take it slow, take a big conscious breath, come into the present moment and just Be.

Flowing Restorative Yoga For Breast Cancer Physical Therapy

Slumpy Swami Restorative Yoga

By: Breast Cancer Yoga Staff.

Breast Cancer Yoga is a therapeutic flowing yoga that encourages and supports gentle repetitive movements, combined with specific breathing exercises.  The use of props are a major component for each pose. This combination of flowing poses, proper breathing and yoga props aids in the healing of the mind, body and spirit. In order for this to happen there needs to be a release of physical muscle tension and a mental “letting go” of the emotional feelings of fear, stress, anxiety and depression. Breast Cancer Yoga is a kind and gentle flowing yoga that encourages repair and recovery.  It is restorative; there are no weight-bearing poses that could cause pain and no headstands or challenging poses.

Flowing poses in Breast Cancer Yoga produce multiple physical benefits when recovering from breast cancer surgery or cancer treatments.  The continuous flowing movements have a positive affect on the lymphatic system. When lymph fluid is disrupted through breast cancer surgery, trauma or infection there may be an excessive buildup of fluid. This may create the damaging effects of lymphedema.  Stagnant fluid can wreak havoc on the soft tissues and create swelling.  There also can be a reduction of oxygen intake or absorption by the lymphatic system – all of which increases the chance for infection. Practicing a flowing yoga keeps the lymphatic fluid pumping throughout the body’s channels, rather than accumulating or backing up. This is great for promoting healthy breast tissue.  Flowing movements develop a supple spine and a strong nervous system so when the nervous system is in balance, the parasympathetic and sympathetic system work together creating great calm.  When flowing in the practice the poses also encourage digestion, assimilation and elimination.  The body’s immune system is stimulated as well to maintain health.

Ultimately this system of yoga encourages and supports recovery back to a balanced state of mind and body.  This is where one can learn to lessen muscle and emotional tension, and replace it with self-nurturance, health, vitality and hope.

Yoga Pose For Breast Cancer & Lymphedema – Easy Warrior (Flow)

Easy Warrior Flow Yoga Pose

Yoga Model Angela Strynkowski, E-RYT 500

By: Diana Ross, E-RYT 500 Co-Founder of Breast Cancer Yoga.

Yoga and Breast Cancer Lymphedema Management:
A restorative yoga practice that includes  continuous flowing movements may significantly improve the lymphatic system. When lymph fluid is disrupted because of breast cancer surgery, trauma or infection, excessive lymph fluid builds up. This stagnant fluid can play havoc on the tissues and create swelling. There also can be a reduction of the oxygen absorption in the lymphatic system which increases the chance for infection. Practicing a flowing yoga keeps the lymphatic fluid pumping throughout the body’s channels, rather than accumulating or backing up. It is great for maintaining healthy breast tissue. To keep this fluid moving, we need to also foster relaxation. It will facilitate renewed or restored strength and flexibility.

Easy Warrior (Flow) Is A Standing Chest and Heart Opener Yoga Pose:
When practicing standing chest and heart openers, there must be a quality of keen awareness and discrimination that promote our sharpness of intelligence and our power of concentration. We must approach each and every chest and heart opener respectfully because  the spinal nerves and spinal muscles touch one another which could create spasms and lack of circulation.

Benefits:

  • Opens and expands pectoral muscles
  • Promotes lymphatic fluid drainage and decreases blockages
  • Softens stiff shoulders or frozen shoulder
  • Frees the breath by way of opening the chest region
  • Improves leg strength and flexibility
  • Increases ROM (range of motion) for arms, and shoulders
  • Has calming effect by  harmonizing the breath to the movement
  • Warms up entire body
  • Allows neck muscles to relax which improves overall circulation
  • Lengthens entire spine allowing there to be space between each vertebrae
