Yoga, Meditation and Workshops

Yoga for cancer

Learn how to improve your wellness during and after treatment with our expert yoga teachers and health educators.


Yoga at MIOG

Researchers have found that practicing yoga twice a week for 75 minutes can help reduce the risk of cancer spreading or returning. After a 4 week intervention, serum inflammation markers reduced, which play a significant role in the development and progression of cancer. It has also been found to improve sleep quality and daytime functioning, improve quality of life, and reduce feelings of anxiety and depression.

MIOG runs regular yoga classes and workshops - keep an eye on our upcoming events here.
