What does cancer treatment have to do with yoga?

We believe yoga has the transformative power to heal, reveal and inspire. Studies have shown that people who get regular exercise, like yoga, are at lower risk of breast cancer than people who are inactive. Studies also suggest that practicing yoga for just ten weeks seems to reduce stress and anxiety in people experiencing mild-to-moderate levels of stress. Yoga appears to work about as well as relaxation therapy or cognitive behavioral therapy.
