The Benefits of Restorative Yoga

The Benefits of Restorative Yoga

The benefits of Restorative Yoga are many and it is interesting to note that rates of complementary and alternative medicine usage in women with breast cancer are high (70%–80%).

Mind-body therapies, are defined by the National Centre for Complementary and Alternative Medicine as “interventions designed to facilitate the mind’s capacity to affect bodily functions and symptoms.” Meditation, imagery, and yoga are the most commonly used mind-body therapies. Evidence is strong that mind-body therapies improve mood, quality of life, treatment-related side effects and sleep in cancer patients.

Reports of yoga for patients with cancer suggest both physical and psychological benefits. Significant improvements have been seen for fatigue, depression and improved health-related quality of life.


  • increased muscular strength
  • flexibility & range of motion
  • energy & relaxation
  • sense of well-being
  • decreased pain
  • improved sleep quality
  • stress reduction

Additional recent studies of yoga in persons with cancer (primarily breast cancer) suggest enhanced health-related quality of life and decreased depression, anxiety, distress, symptoms, and sleep difficulties.

At Lime Physical Therapy we offer Restorative yoga classes for our cancer clients throughout their journey. If you have any further questions please contact us on 07 3188 9308.
