Yoga and Exercise

While it may be difficult at times, it is important to stay as active as possible both during and after treatment. Getting regular exercise is important not only for your overall health but can help lessen certain side effects of treatment and may help reduce risk of recurrence.

Exercise can sometimes be a challenge, particularly if you have been in treatment or have had surgery. Always ask your doctor before you start a new exercise regimen and to discuss which exercises are best for you.
