Nydia's Yoga Therapy for Cancer and Heart Disease
A gentle therapeutic yoga class will introduce the importance of breath and focused attention to a relaxed seated and lying practice that is directed toward supporting a meditative and calm state of being.  Focused attention will be directed towards using the ujjayi breath to maintain concentration, optimize oxygenation and encourage the parasympathetic nervous system to initiate the Relaxation Response. Core strength, mobility and flexibility of the extremities and the importance of learning how to safely move from standing to transitioning to the floor in sitting, supine and prone will be addressed.  Brief introduction to the benefits of using slow deep exhalation during the practice will be discussed along with awareness of how Dr. Stephen Porges Polyvagal Theory and Heart Rate Variability represent much of the science that supports the benefits of this type of practice.  This practice is available to all level practitioners.  Aromatherapy (optional) will be offered during the final rest (Savasana).

Precaution in Cancer Patients with Bone Metatstasis
Limited Capacity seats available

Bones are the third most common site for cancer metastases and the axial skeleton is the most frequent skeletal location. In a postmortem study, bone metastases were reported in 70% of breast and prostate cancer patients. Bone metastases from breast, lung, prostate, thyroid, and kidney cancers account for 80% of all bone metastases. Bone lesions exist in 60% of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients. With increasing numbers of cancer survivors, many cancer patients with axial skeletal bony metastases will be seen by yoga instructors.
Guidelines are lacking on how to practice Yoga in these patients without compromising the diseased spine. This lecture will discuss the available evidence in similar spinal conditions, the biomechanics of spinal load and changes associated with posture and weight load. We will render our recommendations on Yoga practice in these patients.
