About the Event
Kara Bercher will offer Yoga to help cancer patients and survivors manage side effects and cancer recovery through evidence based oncology yoga. This class will be an active practice that matches breath and movement to mitigate the short and long term side effects that cancer patients and survivors face–like bone less, lymphedema, scar tissue, constipation, neuropathy, fatigue, anxiety and more.
Each session will build strength and flexibility -strengthen the immune system and lymphatic function-reduce cancer related fatigue -improve sleep and reduce anxiety -increase bone density -help manage common side effects of treatments -encourage survivors to be active participants in their wellness plan
Both the American Cancer Society and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends between 150 – 320 minutes of yoga per week to speed recovery or defend against cancer occurrence and reoccurrence. Who: cancer patients and survivors
About me, Kara Bercher: I am certified in Vinyasa Yoga, and have two certifications in teaching oncology yoga. I also live my life with cancer. I have stage IV leiomyosarcoma, have had multiple recurrences, undergone surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments. I understand the unique physical and emotional needs and challenges of those living their lives with cancer. My practice of oncology yoga has helped me to lead a very healthy and active life. I would love to share the benefits of oncology yoga with you!
