I was diagnosed and beat kidney, bladder and prostate cancers - all in one year. I am a yoga teacher and I can attest that yoga helped me through the whole cycle. It is not just helpful post-surgery, yoga helped me deal with the situation mentally and emotionally and prepared me for the surgeries. I recommend anyone starting with basic Hatha yoga when faced with cancer. Cancer is a fight within and Yoga is an awesome way to get within and fight it.
