Yoga for the Cancer Patient

Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), the world’s oldest and largest private cancer center, has developed Y.E.S. ™, Yoga and Exercise for Survivors, an evidence-based professional development course for certified yoga instructors. Cancer patients and survivors may have unique needs and specific modifications instructors must take into account.
