Yoga at Barts

Yoga at Barts Hospital, London

Yoga

A gentle hatha yoga class open to everyone but specifically designed to help those affected by cancer.   Whether you have been affected personally or by association it is a challenging time physically and emotionally. Yoga can help play a part in regaining movement, energy, and confidence.

The Class  

We begin with relaxation to focus the mind and bring awareness to the body and areas of tension. Breathing exercises follow to increase energy and calm the mind. Adapted yoga postures can gradually increase the flexibility of muscles and ligaments while also stimulating internal organs so by the end of the class you feel a greater sense of spiritual well-being and upliftment.

Frequently asked questions:
