Dr Yoga's Practice Manual - Endorsed by world leading oncologists and yoga teachers. With guided sequences of three levels of difficulties, helping you to progress through your breast cancer journey into your recovery. Suitable as a tool for a home-based practice for breast cancer patients and survivors.

The gentle healing yoga flow sequence is specifically designed for breast cancer patients recovering from surgery or undergoing active treatments like radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The sequence is designed for those who want to alleviate the common side effects of these treatments, including fatigue, insomnia, muscular pain, lymphedema, anxiety and depression.

The rejuvenating yoga flow sequence is specifically designed for breast cancer patients who have completed all on-going medical treatments and are ready for a physically stronger, yet grounded yoga practice.

The dynamic yoga flow sequence is designed for breast cancer survivors who have worked through both the healing and rejuvenating sequences, and who are ready for a more dynamic and challenging practice.
