Cancer treatment is an arduous process. Patients may experience a range of debilitating side effects both during and after treatment. Yoga may help with these side effects, but is it possible for people undergoing cancer treatment, who may be suffering from fatigue, nausea, psychological distress, and cognitive issues, to stick to a yoga routine?
A recent study set out to determine just this. Researchers at St. Luke’s International Hospital in Tokyo, Japan, investigated whether a self-directed yoga program was feasible for breast cancer patients who experience cognitive issues during chemotherapy.
Of the 17 women, aged 33-58 years, who participated in the study, 86% practiced yoga at home throughout the entire four-week duration of the study. Ninety-four percent of the participants practiced the home yoga program more than twice a week. When surveyed about the yoga program, all participants answered “Agree” or “Strongly Agree” for all survey questions; hence the acceptability rate of the program was 96.5%.
The yoga program offered three 15-minute courses varying in intensity: warm-up, low intensity, and high intensity. Participants preferred the warm-up and low-intensity offerings (stable sedentary poses, breathing and stretching exercises) to the higher intensity standing poses. They also preferred to gradually increase the intensity of the exercises within each session.
In their analysis of the data, the study’s authors indicated that the high retention, adherence, and acceptability rates were a result of allowing the participants to tailor their own yoga practice based on their preferences and whatever physical and psychological issues were coming up that day. Also, the fact that the participants practiced yoga at home gave them the flexibility to incorporate the routine into their day at a time that was convenient for them.
Below is a sequence inspired by the researchers’ recommendations for low-intensity, stable, sedentary poses and breathing exercises. The postures and exercises were chosen based upon those offered to participants in the study. Mix and match, or do the sequence from start to finish. But most importantly, let your body, breath, mind, and heart guide you to determine what feels right for you from moment to moment.
